  • As soon as you enter the Church of Sant'Antonio, one is struck and fascinated by ceiling, frescoed in ' 600. Even more important and valuable the beautiful paintings by Procaccini and Frizzy in the side chapels. Don't miss a visit to the cloister with a view of the Bell Tower

  • Dazzling beauty, albeit too opulent, the Interior of this church not only affects the wealth of decorations-all stucco and gilding-but for real ' collection of valuable paintings from the 17th lap, among which stands out, thanks to the restoration which recovered the beautiful colors, the beautiful "Adorazione del Bambino" by Camillo Procaccini. To visit (from 10 onwards) with the help of friendly volunteers of the Touring Club. More details in my previous review.
