Via Angelica- Chiesa Santi Jacopo E Lucia

The Via Angelica is one of the most ancient connecting place in the heart of the town. It was a street used to connect the city center with the countryside on the down hill. Next to the San Domenico Church facade there is a small gate that access to a corridor. Here, there are three chapels. One of this is the Oratory of Saint Urban, particularly interesting for its beautiful frescos underneath the seventeen-century decoration – showing scenes from the Way of the Cross – remarkable fragments of former frescoes (second half of the 12th century) have come to the surface together with a rare picture of Saint Urban Pope holding the image of Saint Paul and Saint Peter.
