  • This church completely restored and host the famous monumental organ "Dom Bedos" built by the famous organ builder Formentelli on original design of ' 500 is one of the jewels of the city. My daughter was the first baptized when they reopened the Church. There is also a harpsichord created from the same workshop. Often hosts musical events in a city that from this point of view has no shortage of attractions.

  • Finally reopened after the events related to the earthquake, the ancient Church is again open and see not only what in the past was for centuries the city's richest and artistically interesting basilica, but because today inside there is the organ Pontifical Dom Bedos Rubo. The organ is unique not so much for its size as for its methodology of construction based on the plans of the ancient art of organ building. Inside the church organ concerts often take place and this year has also been restored to the evocation of "the canonization of Saint Dominic by Guzman," historical representation 1234 event took place in the Cathedral of Rieti. The Church is usually open during hours of celebrations, but something is moving to keep it open more often, as on the occasion of events "Rieti open."

  • 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.
