Chiesa di Santa Croce
The church of Santa Croce is of ancient romanesque origin and is found on the ancient road of Via Francigena (12th Century). It underwent important modifications in 1415 and in the 17th Century. The building was first given an elevated section and then covered by a dome, and now has the notable Chapel of San Giuseppe. Traces of its origins can be seen in the pillars of the three naves which have medieval designs. The central nave is frescoed by Giovanni Maria Conti della Camera (around 1635). Inside the chapel a wood carving can be admired that is the work of Angelo Fontana in the second half of the 18th Century.
