This is an important amalgamation made up of the monastery and the church dedicated to the saint, which was built half way through the 15th Century by Giovanni da Capistrano. It was later restored after damaged sustained during the second world war. The brick façade is enhanced by a porch which is decorated with gothic spires at each extremity. The portal is Renaissance and there is also a cloister adorned by several frescoes. The bell-tower too is built out of brick. The inner layout is made up of two naves built in Franciscan style, that is where the main nave is twice the size of the side nave which in turn opens up into several chapels. The flat ceiling, built beneath the tressled roof, is decorated with friezes dating back to 1461.
