Here vandalized by granite veis instead of marble ones is an absolutely incongruous makeover of the pavement.

This church is no doubt the most interesting in town. It is most famous for being the rest place of the relics of two saints: Boetius and, most famous, Saint Augustin.

The actual urn in enclosed in a magnificently sculpted ark, it is exposed only on some recurrences (like the day of st. Augustine).
Nice facade (Lombard). Located in a quiet neighborhood next to a pleasant little park/piazza. Inside there is a beautiful 14th century funeral monument to St Augustine. Yes, the "Doctor of the Church" and "City of God" St Augustine. Legend has it that his bones are located under the monument (the usual skepticism is warranted with these sorts of claims). Still, the faithful make pilgrimage to this Church so it was, given it's location, rather crowded. In and out in 25 minutes. Free.
