Church of Saints Joseph and Anne

Despite its poor condition, the one-nave church currently has a beautiful Neapolitan majolica floor, depicting a pelican feeding its children with its heart.

In 1616, Dan Alfarano founded a conservatory of virgins called the 'Monacelle', which, in 1661, became the cloistered monastery of Sts Joseph and Anne.

The monastery, located at 16 Via S. Domenico, has a long continuous façade that includes the church, convent and bell tower. Two entrances lead to the convent, one below the beautiful Rococo bell tower, the other at number 16 with a beautiful portal with alternating pilasters and double ashlars (early 18th century).
Inside, a large courtyard with a long balcony supported by corbels.
