Description

The church (14C), commissioned by Raimondello Orsini del Balzo, houses a marvellous cycle of remarkably bright 15C frescoes. Several themes are tackled: the Apocalypse, Genesis, the New Testament (the richest and best composed), the life of Jesus... and, in the sanctuary, the life of St Catherine of Alexandria. The apse, with an octagonal floor plan and groin vault with tiercerons, was executed in 1455-60.
