  • Particular Basilica with a nave that gives an appearance of depth which appears to stretch it out. Remarkable the altar, decorated with marble.

  • The Church of the Madonna del Ponte is so called because it is built on a bridge with three arches. In 1088, restoring the bridge after an earthquake, he found an ancient statue of the Madonna and child, the event considered miraculous, led to rename this icon Madonna del Ponte and a chapel was built to store it on the bridge itself. The Church visible today was built between 1785 and 1788. The Interior consists of a single nave, surrounded by Giant Corinthian columns seeds. The vault and the domes are painted. In a niche at the center of the altar is a statue of the Madonna del Ponte.

  • Spread large space behind the large wooden doors, decorative wall and ceiling frescoes is magnificent, but it creates bright spaces. In the heart of town near the access is good. And the square in front of the building, as well as cafes. It is close to the Church of the miraculous.
