Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta e Cripta Medievale is a beautiful building. It can be seen from afar, and that dome is absolutely magnificent. The church is worth a visit if you are in this town.

There are times of the day when the church is open so if you can go in during your stay, we thought it was highly worth the visit. Glad we went in
