Church of Sant'Antonio Abate
Near the so-called Bagno di Bacco (a Roman water cistern whose ruins are still visible in Via S. Antonio), the church of Sant'Antonio Abate is built around a nave erected in 1300 that was enlarged around 1600 to include two lateral naves that today correspond to the oratorio and bell tower. The fašade is in sandstone and the bell tower that we see today is an altered version of the original. The church has been deconsecrated for some time.
