Parish Church and Peace Chapel

Description

The Church of San Giovanni Battista (Saint John the Baptist) is tied hand in glove with the Good Pope. In 1902, when the laying of the foundation stone was sanctified, he stood among the crowd, too, as a simple seminary student. Afterwards, it was closed due to infiltrations and was later restored. When it opened back, in 1929, the bishop Angelo Roncalli consecrated it once again. Next to it, you can also visit the Cappella della Pace (the Peace Chapel), guarding a stunning inlay work made of 70.000 wood pieces!
