  • 15th-century basilica. To be observed especially the organ, a true work of art, and the magnificent coffered ceiling. Restored after the earthquake of 2009 and reopened to the public by 2015.

  • One of the largest churches of the Eagle returned to its former glory after the restoration after the earthquake of 2009. Beautiful and impressive facade completely white that stands out compared to the warm colours of the surrounding buildings. Within merit attention the beautiful wooden ceiling and the large organ located above the main entrance.
