In 1969 Caravaggio's the Nativity painting was stolen from this small church's altar. Never found. A few years ago a digital version was hung. It is said to be as close to the original as possible. A must see.

This place is small but stunning. The quality of the carvings/stucco is mind-blowing. This is a beautiful gem that can often be crowded. Warning - they don't allow photos.

We found the Oratorio hard to find but well worth the effort as the decoration was remarkable and, apparently, all done by one man!

The whole walls are covered in real lifelike figures that seem to leap out of the walls. The figures are all stucco and are a playful work by the artist and there is not a bare bit of wall that does not have a figure...More
