Chiesa della Misericordia (Church of Mercy)The oldest and most mysterious sacred building
In the centre of the town, perched near the OrsiniCastle
Given the position in which it was built, it can be said that the Church of Mercy dates from the town’s earliest stages. Its medieval origin is clearly visible from the wall remains found during restoration works carried out in 1984 and 2009.
The small church has a single nave. The walls have shades of green while the floor is made of terracotta. The presbytery is raised and covered with peperino slabs. On the opposite side of the church there is a balcony used as a chancel. In one corner you can admire a small hand-carved wooden organ from 1878.
Between history and restoration
Other noteworthy works are the eighteenth-century altar of the Madonna of Loreto, on the left, which depicts in a niche the Madonna holding her child against a blue background, and the painting of the Last Supper placed on the right, done in 1714 and mentioning the will of Pietro Basilio.
