Church of San Bernardino

Recommended
This magnificent church is striking for its lavish façade completed in 1527 by Cola dell'Amatrice. Inside, beneath a lovely wooden Baroque ceiling is the elegant tomb of Maria Pereira and the mausoleum of San Bernardino adorned with figures by the local sculptor, Silvestro dell'Aquila (a reminder that Bernadino of Siena died in L'Aquila in 1444).
