Nice but no entry

Was not open when we walked by. The town appears to close down in the middle of the day but not for the normal European lunch break but for the bulk of the day.

If you are in Benevento or in its proximity you must make a stop to see this unique church. Italy is full of churches and cathedrals and basilicas but this small, simple church holds a true and fascinating charm and it is different from most.

If you like to visit old churches and compare various designs then you should visit this one. It has an interesting design which reflects a deviation from other earlier churches. If you in town, it is worth a look.

There are no baroque paintings or elaborate artwork that one associates with Catholic churches. It is more like a Presbyterian church.

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.
