Church of the Purgatory

The Church of Purgatory, in addition to being a church, is also a mini museum of works of art, including an eighteenth-century organ of great value. The original seat of the church was located in the Sasso Caveoso but not easy to reach by the faithful. It was thus decided to move the headquarters elsewhere, that is, on the plane. The people wanted a church dedicated to the dead and thus the current building was born. All lent their manpower that was very numerous. The main feature that is immediately noticeable from the outside of the church is the numerous presence of skulls carved into the rock.
