S. Maria a Gradillo

In ancient times St Maria a Gradillo Church housed the meetings of the common people who run the politic orientation of the town in opposition to the rich people who gathered in the twin Church, St. Giovanni del Toro. Inside, under the floor, it is possible to see the ancient decoration with small white and grey stones, which represents, in the whole central nave, a tree of life with a slim trunk and lance shaped leaves as well as animals at the bottom.*
