Santa Maria della Cava
The cave, originally with a cruciform and single-nave plan, opens onto an open space with a façade built and inscribed in a round arch in square ashlars. After the earthquake of 1693 much of the original spatiality was lost, leaving only the apse carved into the rock. On the wall in front of the entrance there is a fresco with the Madonna and Child, while traces of frescoes depicting Saint Ilarione appear along the left wall.
