CATTEDRALE DI SANTA MARIA DEL PONTE
Where Piazza del Plebiscito, Lanciano (Chieti)
Madonna del Ponte Cathedral, situated in Piazza del Plebiscito, is the result of the restoration of a sixteenth-century hall built on the remains of the Roman bridge of Diocletian. The nineteenth-century façade, never completed in the upper part, reflects the Neoclassical manner. Four projecting Corinthian columns interrupt the front surface. The church consists of one single nave, decorated on the vault with a precious cycle of frescoes carried out in the eighteenth-century by Giacinto Diana.
