St. Francis of Assisi Church

It is said that the Saint Francis church has been founded after the return of Saint Francis from the East, but the building actually dates from the 13th century. After the earthquake of 1880, the church was rebuilt in neo-gothic style and the baroque altars were removed. Next to the church lies an abbey from the 17th century, but it is believed that Saint Francis (1181-1226) has stayed here.

St Mary Church

The Mary church dates from the 14th century. In 1740, some baroque altars were added to the building. The church owes its current state to the renovation that took place after the earthquake in 1880.
