Located on the West side of via Garibaldi (ex Dora Grossa), you gain access to it via a porch with a colonnade, now closed by glass and the seat of administrative offices. At the bottom of a long corridor located on the right hand side of the street entrance, a small, rather unassuming door leads to a Baroque triumph, built in the 1600s as a place for bankers and shopkeepers to meet and worship. Several canvases by different painters but similar styles describe the Nativity of Jesus. Beautiful white marble-like wood statues flank the chapel. A fresco depicting the Ascension of Jesus into Heaven, enclosed within a beautiful gilded trompe-l'oeil frame makes up the ceiling and a gorgeous pipe organ sits on the main entrance. Every Saturday, the chapel hosts a free concert at 5pm and Mass is celebrated on Sundays at 11.
This is a rare treat that should not be missed.
