We always visit churches when we travel and this was a must see. They had a docent that was very knowledgeable about the ruins and you could go into the basement to see musiac floors.

It is a church near the port, very plain inside, recently reastaured. It has excellent acoustics and in the Autumn there are often concerts

The S.Maria Della Pizza didnt get a mention in our guide book, but was a pleasant surprise. It was closed on the day we were there but was able to walk around. The architecture is still grand, even though you can tell it has been...More
