Church of Santa Maria del Gesł

It is one of  the most significant churches of  the city. It was realized in the first half of the sixteenth century, in late-gothic style, on an already existing chapel dedicated to Saint Mark, paid by the State for the “Frati Francescani Minori Osservanti”. On the main façade there is a splayed ogival portal. On the side entry of Via San Pietro, there is an interesting fifteenth century art work representing the Announcement. Inside, the church has a nave and two aisles with a wooden truss roof, where you can find important sculptures: a fifteenth century “Madonna con Bambino”, made in glazed terracotta by the Tuscan Andrea Della Robbia, located in the left apse, under a marble baldachin by Antonello Gagini (1516), and a marble ciborium of the sixteenth century by the same artist. The coat of arms of  the Ciambra family is on the left of  the entry.
