Above the church of San Bernardino is situated the ancient hall of the Confraternita del Santissimo Sacramento decorated entirely with a precious cycle of votive frescoes of the 15th and 16th centuries.

The church of Santi Giuseppe e Bernardino was built in the 16th century to replace the oldest church of San Bernardino.
