Quiet, presumably as out of the main town centre and close to the wonderful cemetery this church was worth a visit. Contains some interesting relics.

An evocative old church that takes you back in time, this church has an imposing exterior. The interior has beautiful frescoes by a student of Giotto. If you are an art lover, see these and imagine the church of Giotto's time. It is about a 20-minute brisque walk from the main piazza.

I especcially enjoyed the affresco. Must be seen if you like roman style. I would also suggest to visit the next-door university.
