(Page 2 of 3)



In the medieval centre is the Sanctuary of San Donato.  It has been renovated and enlarged over the centuries and the present structure is decorated with Baroque stucco work.  It houses several impressive paintings and frescoes.


The Cathedral of Santa Maria and San Marcello was founded in the 14th century but was remodelled in the 18th century in the present Baroque style.  It houses an excellent pipe organ  and the relics of Santa Costanza.

Opposite the cathedral is the beautiful 18th century Palazzo Quadrari.

Other churches in the town include Our Lady of Mount Caramel and St. Antonio, which was formerly part of a convent,  the Chiesa di San Rocco, the Chiesa della Cappelletta, the  Chiesa della Serola, the Chiesa del Divino Amore and the Convento dei Franciscani.

In Via Maggiore there is the “Stone of San Bernardino” also known as the “Stone of Scandal”, as unfortunate debtors were forced to sit there and be subjected to public ridicule.

In the main square of Piazza Carlo Coletti stands the War Memorial.

In a wing of the Franciscan Convent is the Geological and Environmental Museum.

There is also the Museo Della Civilta’ Contadina or Museum of Country Life, which recalls rural and cultural traditions of times gone by.  The Sandonatesi were well known for their skills in the making of woollen cloth, stone masonry and wrought iron work.
