An ancient, small church; most important remaining parts of church are doorway and grounds. Easy to see this and all other sites in Benevento in one afternoon.

Look at the garden, and if the church is open, take a look inside. It is truly breathtaking

Must visit, in excellent condition even though it's been thru earthquakes and the ravages of time. In 2011, it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and so it should be.
