It is a little off the beaten track but worth the effort. The room is filled with stucco putti and the stations of the cross.

It's tricky to find so use Google maps and trip advisor but it's stunning. Costs 4 euros or another 2 to go to oratorio a few minutes walk. It's a gem!

A small place with exquisite stucco work around the four walls including surrounding the windows. We found the audio guide helpful.

I saw this on a BBC documentary in 2012. I just had to go and visit. It's beautiful - mind blowing - spectacular.

Amazing and thrilling decorations in stucco make this oratorio a great site. The walls are covered with brilliant narratives and commemorative scullptures. The patterned marble floor is killer!

this little church is a real surprise after so many mosaics in others. It is very pain with delightful orman architecture. You only need 10 minutes to visit and worth it.

Very unusual in that the interior decoration is mostly plaster carvings, of figures and of scenes. The detail is extraordinary and it could take hours to take it all in. The original entrance hall also houses a full gallery of portraiture of the Oratorio members...More
