  The Church of St. Peter
by croisbeauty
 
 

The original church of St. Peter, from 1272, used to stand outside the city walls. The architect Pietro Nobile gave it its present look in the year 1818. The whole composition of thr church and the facade express pure classicism. Above the entrance of the church there is a relief made by sculptor Antonio Bossi, which represents the handing over the keys to St. Peter.
