This was an excellent visit. No photos were permitted but cards of the frescoes can be bought. The frescoes are really beautiful. Although small it was a most worthy place to visit. A lovely older lady explained the life of Saint Cecilia and her husband. It was in Italian but very thoroughly explained. I really enjoyed it.

The frescos in the oratorium of Cecilia tell about the live and death of Cecilia and her husband. It offers a detailed view and perspective of live in the middle ages not to big but really impressive..

We spent a pleasant afternoon at a performance of renaissance music. The performers were of the highest quality. The concert was in the beautiful surroundigs of the chapel and was free (donations were accepted though). This is a must go to if the chance arises.

Only visit if you are in to art and religion. Very small chapel with incredible frescoes depicting the life of St. Cecilia- truly beautiful. Many people who have no interest in art, history or religion will skip it but they will be the ones who miss out on a special treat.
