Chiesa del Purgatorio o di San Giovanni di Candela

Photo gallery


The building is also known as the "Church of Purgatory" because of the management by the Congregation of Purgatory from 1699 until the first decades of the 20th century.

The rigorous façade is in exposed stone, tripartite, and is punctuated by well-marked windows and frames. The interior is equally sober, but is made soft by the eighteenth-century stucco; the space is divided into three naves, with the central one slightly elevated compared to the side. The presbytery is embellished by a polychrome marble altar of the '700, while the apse is occupied by a eighteenth-century wooden choir. The Church preserves a painting depicting the Madonna and Saint John the Baptist praying and below the souls of Purgatory; the statues of Our Lady of Sorrows, Saint Jude Taddeo and Saint Anthony Abbate, as well as a wooden pulpit bearing the coat of arms of the Coven.
