Church of Sant’Agata

CaPe.1

The church was built in the second half of the 16th century on the site of a previous medieval building. The structure, in the mannerist style, has a single nave with two side chapels dedicated to San Fermo and the Madonna, and was designed by Pellegrino Tibaldi, called Pellegrini. The interior retains an extremely old Crucifix and five effigies of saints frescoed by Camillo da Landriano. There are also four paintings from the mid-17th century in the style of Caravaggio: San Fermo, a Deposition of Christ, the Funeral and the Martyrdom of Sant’Agata. There is also an oil painting of the Twelve Mysteries of the Rosary from the same period. There is also a fine inlaid 17th century wardrobe
