Church of St. Grisogono
The church of St. Grisogono and its bell tower are the only surviving parts of the once vast Benedictine abbey, founded in the early Middle Age. The church was built in 10th century on the site of the Roman emporium, where there used to be a monastery and a church of St. Anthony from 6th century. This basilica was built in a Romanesque style, consisting of three parts which end in a semicircular apse. Baroque altar with three patron saints of St. Simon, St. Grisogono, St. Anastasia and St. Zoila made of white marble was built in 1701 as a people’s covenant against the plague.
