The Church which stands in the most ancient part of the tow was rebuilt in the second half of XVII century on the design of Cosimo Fanzago. It was rebuilt again in the second half of XVII century on Cosimo Fazagos design; with a central plan and the floor in terracotta and Eighteenth Century majolica tiles.
