  • Just open to the public, is located in piazza San Rufo where historians say, there would be the center of Italy commemorated by a plaque called "loaf" because domed and circular. It is in the historic centre, a bit secluded, founded in 1141 and in its present form rebuilt in 1760 by the Roman architect Melchiorre Passalacqua. Has a simple façade, while the Interior, rich and sumptuous, Baroque nave, preserves a beautiful XVII century painting depicting "the guardian angel" attributed to Giovanni Angelo Galli said the "spadarino." Moreover, behind the altar, there is a painting of "the ecstasy of St. Camillus De Lellis by the French painter Pierre Subleyras, and then a small organ dating back to 700. A beautiful little church to visit while wandering in the old town.

  • I know this church for professional reasons, I've been there recently as a tourist, but I was able to visit only the exterior, as it was closed. Overlooks the homonymous small square, that tradition indicates as the center of Italy. The façade is sober enough, marked by pilasters that highlight its verticality. The Interior has a single nave is Baroque, Rococo and 17th-century paintings with coretti extremely interesting. The Church has ancient origins, to which the current one is entirely made up. Walking through Rieti is worth a visit, always to be able to find it open.
