Chiesa di S. Maria in Betlem

This 12th century Romanesque church is situated in a town area, which was once an ancient quartier outside the town walls. In the Middle Ages, the pilgrims on their journey to the East used to travel across this area, which fell within the Bishop of Bethlehem’s competence and was next to the ancient hospital of St. Antonio: a typical medieval building which was to give hospitality to travellers and help poor and sick people too. The church contains the wooden statue of the Madonna della Stella, which is worshipped and traditionally carried in procession on the boats along the river.
