  • It is located in piazza Beata Colomba and is one of the most important churches of the city, in the Romanesque style. It was built by Dominican friars around 1270, its architecture is a Latin cross and has a single nave, while the Bell Tower dates back to 1642. Between the 14th and 18th centuries, thanks to the many donations, was enriched by chapels, frescoes, sculptures and paintings, but most of these have been lost. From the second half of the 700 was abandoned and used as first team and then for military purposes. After a period of abandonment was restored and reconsecrated in 1999. An integral part of the Church is the Oratory of Saint Peter Martyr, a convent and a cloister frescoed by scenes from the life of blessed Colomba, Dominican sister, from which it takes its name from the homonymous square. Inside is a beautiful organ with 4000 pipes, dating to 1700 and is one of the finest jewels that Rieti possesses.
