Lovely church in a small piazza. We went out of season and in the week so not too busy. We were able to sit quietly and contemplate without loads of people about. Nice little gist shops and café scattered around - all very welcoming

Our afternoon stroll for ice cream led us to this Cathedral. For a little town in southern Italy the frescoes are wonderful! (caveat - this is all relative)

The outside was nothing to talk about but inside was quite beautiful and worth some time just to see the elaborate and quite outstanding wall decorations and art.

Like most others in Italy mornings are the most reliable times to visit. Evening opening tends to be not so regular. But normally open 7:30 to 13:00 then again later to 9:30 ish. But things can change with special ‘days’.
