  • A restoration in progress allows a visit rather limiting. Inside the Cathedral there is a relic of the Saint, which consists of a glass bulb containing a coal and a piece of bone as well as mixed with grease and oil; This ' flow ' normally solid, during the celebrations of August 10 becomes liquid, like the blood of San Gennaro.

  • A not particularly attractive artistic building from the outside. Inside there is a pleasant wooden deposition dates back to the treedicesimo century.

  • This church with its imposing 17th century façade dominates the small square of the same name which opens into the pleasant old town. In fact the Church is much older, but how often subsequent transformations have distorted the original layout (think that the interior decorations are nineteenth-century even). Thank goodness that remained the splendid Romanesque Bell Tower, 45 metres high and visible from many parts of the city. Fronted by a portico leads inside (you can also enter by an entrance on the left side) which however fails to excite much, accomplices perhaps renovations going on. The structure has a single nave with lateral hats that are communicating with each other. Present the most interesting works are kept in the 3° Chapel of sx (a 12th-century triptych and a 15th-century silver case) and in the 4th Chapel of dx (which opens on the presbytery) where you can see the most important work: a wooden group depicting the Deposition of Christ from the 13th century. On the same square you can find the old public wash-houses (interesting the inscription prohibiting entry to men) and the structure of meditation table.
