Overview

Originally from the 14th Century, the church of Santa Cita was constructed at least three times, the second time in the 15th Century and the present from from the end of the 16th Century. Today, it is without the two lateral naves, which were destroyed during the war and never reconstructed. The inside is in the form of the latin cross with a wide transept, from which there are four chapels on the sides of the presbytery, all masterpieces of Baroque art and in which one can view the remarkable inlaying works of Gagini. In the apse, behind the main alter, Gagini's arch from the 14th-century church of Santa Cita is still preserved.
