The first church was destroyed in 1667 earthquake, like a lot of the town structures. That first church from 6-7th century and then another was from 1198 and constructed as Romanesque style and completed after about 200 years. This building is from 1672 and it took about 40 years to complete. It is rather plain inside and not ornate. The treasury basically did not impress me and all was crammed into a small room by the alter. Price was $3 and not worth it. There was a small display of a few items(said to be 200-not), but I would not consider it a treasury worth seeing
