  • The small church, which stands near the Palace of the Prefecture, was commissioned by the order of the humiliati in 1515 and stands on the site of an earlier Church, as often happens in our country. The façade has Renaissance despite decidedly amended, while the Interior has three naves and boasts fine art and ideas, among them: paintings by Gaudenzio Ferrari (our Lady of oranges) and its other fine works in the Chapel della Maddalena and the Blessed Virgin; typical decorative friezes of the time, always in the Ferrari, towering over the same frescoes; the choir, the pulpit and the confessionals with eighteenth-century walnut and Briar; the beautiful polychrome marble balustrade (Juvarra school) that divides the part reserved to the faithful by the presbytery. In my opinion one of the monuments of the city!

  • The Church that I attend as a child and where I got married. It's great for the paintings on the walls and paintings exhibited. Among other things that behind the altar painted detail of a violin but the painting dates back to the period before its invention. Giacobbo did an episode on the case. Lovely and intimate the chapel dedicated to the black madonna on the right of the altar, place of prayer.

  • I go to this church so cute with my son every Sunday because my son is preparing for communion that will do them in may many frescoes to visit if you're in Vercelli.

  • Built in the 16th century on the ruins of a previous building, looks so in the Renaissance style. The Interior has three naves. Beautiful frescoes by Gaudenzio Ferrari: the altarpiece of the Madonna degli Aranci, that shows her with child, St. Joseph, other Saints and religious; the chapel of the Blessed Virgin; the chapel of the Maddalena and the crucifixion.

  • An absolute masterpiece of Gaudenzio Ferrari appears in two arms of the transept preceding apsidal compartment. We are facing one of the most important painting cycles of the sixteenth century in the Liguria-Lombardy-Piedmont.

  • The beautiful frescoes by Gaudenzio Ferrari and the altarpiece of the Madonna and child, St. Joseph and other Saints, deserve the title of "Sistine Chapel of Vercelli"
