Please, you use earphones to not disturb other visitors

The chapel has an ogival arched entrance with an inscription on the superior edge, unfortunately mutilated, with Gothic script on two frames and, internally, a fake frame mosaic. At the bottom is visible an apsidal, surrounded by columns with capitellum in stucco which, up to the Forties
of 20th century, also housed an altar. Under the arch there are fragmentary remains of frescoes: on top, you can see the figure of angel enclosed in a shield, on the right side a Saint with a book in her hands, while on the left there are still faint outline traces of a Saint.
The figurative culture expressed by a few surviving elements is that of Robert d’Oderisio, major Southern interpreter of the lesson of Giotto in the early 14th century.
