  • The Basilica della Ghiara, also known as basilica della Madonna della Ghiara, is one of the main religious buildings in the city. It is located along the ancient course of the Ghiara, now corso Garibaldi. This church was built thanks to the offerings of the faithful as a result of a miracle linked to an image of the Virgin which stood in the area. The temple, a Catholic, is owned by the municipality and is officiated by the Catholic religious order of the servants of Mary. Inside it houses a valuable organ, built in the 18th century. The Interior, late Renaissance style, striking for its profusion of gilding, the richness of marble and lavish frescoes by the school of the Carracci, inspired by the stories of the old testament, ornamented vaults and domes. In quadrature and allocations often takes a series of paintings which has as its subject the women of the old testament.

  • Beautiful temple. Is not always open. It is worth the interior paintings. By Sunday there is a market Street.
