Church of San Francisco de Paula

Highly recommended
Built between 1730 and 1745, this church stands on a little square giving onto the bay (performances here by Ars Longa whose repertoire ranges from medieval to Baroque music). It also used to incorporate a women's hospital, destroyed in 1946 along with the church's chancel. The rest of the building, including its fine dome, was saved and has recently been restored.
