Interesting recently restored church, first downgraded to deposit of furnishings (benches, etc.) pertaining to the cathedral. At the time of our visit the frescoes are only intuitive as they are hidden by a series of photographic panels of great interest regarding the reliquary and silver altar to San Giacomo, kept in the treasury of the Cathedral.
Surely from the outside you do not expect it to be a church or even less so frescoed. We took the opportunity of the free entrance and we got inside, 10 minutes of visit are enough and it is central to the city. It is completely frescoed, even the columns are painted marbled to simulate a stone. Nice!
