church of S. Domenico

CHIESA DI S. DOMENICO= Everyone thinks the church of San Domenico was the first church founded by dominicans. It was built over an ancient pagan temple. It was built with three naves but only the apse and the transept remain. The rest of the body of the church was demolished in the first half of the 1900s for the construction of the woman Academy of physical education. Today it houses the forestry training center.

Inside the church is held the desk used by Tommaso d’Aquino and there is a valuable monument dedicated to Cardinal De Braye. The last restorations have highlighted the statue of the Madonna and the funerary chapel but just some sculptures on the floor are visible.
