Church of Santa Maria Maggiore : Michelin's recommendations
The church was carried away by a landslide in 1757. The mobilisation of the inhabitants lead to its rapid reconstruction, opposite its old site. The doorway of the main facade is in fact the doorway to the palace of the La Via family who donated the new church. The interior contains a large icon in marble on six levels, and Charles V's throne, on which the Emperor placed his august rump during a visit in 1535.
