It was a votive church built by the soldiers returning back from the Battle of Lepanto (1571).
The small baroque interior is rich in stucco decorations.
San Francesco al Musone
Small church located near the confluence of the stream Acqualta and the river Musone, more exactly next to a miraculous water source. A legend has it that in 1210 St. Francis of Assisi himself ordered the waters to gush out.
