Piazza del Duomo information
This church originated in the 6th century, was consecrated in the 13th and rebuilt in Baroque-style in the 18th. Here you can see Isabella of Aragon's tomb (1271) and a copy of 13th-century Byzantine Madonna del Pilerio . Mary's face has a spot, a sign of her 1576 sacrifice. She had inflicted herself with plague to save those who carried around her likeness.
