  • The earthquake of 2009 helped reveal unknown frescoes in the Church that already offered a side altar of outstanding beauty, the restoration was rapid and allowed the reopening to worship in a short time. But, does anyone have believed appropriate to spread every where discutibilissime canvases full of hands, he could tolerate, instead the Church is scattered. The same artist also ran a huge representation of overlapping bodies that was placed at the side of the altar. I don't understand how many we allowed!

  • Interesting Church behind piazza Duomo, in Baroque style, recently restored, where you can see the remains of Pope Celestine V, transported here from the Basilica di Collemaggio.

  • It was perhaps one of the first churches damaged by the quake to be restored, I understand the serious damage suffered by the property, few original frescoes were preserved, and earnestly artworks by contemporary artist chosen to adorn the Church I have seemed gloomy and disturbing to the point of me not liking visit ... sorry, surely is a matter of personal taste and others will not share but that is the impression derived from my experience. In a separate Chapel are the remains of St Peter from Morrone, Pope Celestine V, co-patron saint of the city saved by the collapse of the Basilica di Collemaggio. This may be a valid reason for visiting this basilica.
