The church of Santa Chiara was built between 1310 and 1328. The original design of the church's interior was completely transformed by Domenico Antonio Vaccaro between 1742 and 1747 and the entire Gothic structure was covered by magnificent Baroque ornaments. The Baroque look remained until it was heavily damaged during the Second World War. Now fully restored it is open to the public for tours and services.
