  • One of the treasures of the whole of Basilicata. The church built the fortified Norman 1322 inside the compound. Transformed into the cloistered monastery of the Poor Clares in 1333, until the end of 1800. Undergo multiple revisions. The Church frescoes, still retains some visible pieces following the Baroque transformation. Remains entirely frescoed the chapel of the crucifix, p. a. Ferro (1611 sec. 17th), part of the monastery for cloistered nuns. Below is the crypt which gathers human remains from different eras of certain Poor Clares. The hotel badly damaged by the earthquake of 1980, after decades of closure, is finally being restored to a renewed radiance. Today, with great joy of lovers, reopened to the public.
