Sanctuary of S. Maria in Aula Regia

The origins of the venerated Sanctuary of St. Mary’s in Aula Regia date back to the 10th century.
Sanctuary of S. Maria in Aula Regia

Today’s building is 16th-century with a beautiful façade added at the end of the 19th century that acts as a backdrop to the long straight road Via Mazzini. The interior conserves a sculpture of the Virgin Mary, realised between the 1400s and 1500s. There is also an admirable wooden Baroque Crucifix by Filippo Porri (1641) and the painting The Decollation of The Baptist by Carlo Bononi (c.1630).
