The ancient Marian sanctuary of the Madonna della Misericordia stands on the left of the narrow Santa Chiara alleyway near the Arco d'Augusto. The church has a rough façade lined with brick. Its design in the shape of a Latin cross and the Neo-Classical Nave are especially beautiful. Inside there is a painting on canvas of immense fame: painted by Giuseppe Soleri it shows the features of the Blessed Virgin. The canvas has a chased frame made from solid silver and gilded bronze and is embedded with gems.
