Church of St Mary the Elder

This church was almost totally razed to the ground in the earthquake of 1693. Only the right collateral has survived. The 16C porch and the facade inset with a lunette adorned with low-reliefs form a picturesque ensemble in the splendid countryside of a green valley on the outskirts of the town.
