CHIESA DI SANTA MARIA A VICO
Where Via Diomede Falconio, 1, Sant'Omero (Teramo)
Founded before the eleventh century and maintained almost intact, Santa Maria a Vico rises in the country, where there was once a temple consecrated to Hercules. The entirely brick façade has a horizontal coping and a stone portal, decorated with the holy lamb and the symbols of the four evangelists. The restoration directed by Giuseppe Sacconi reinstated the original rose-window in the middle of the façade. On the external walls there are a few mullioned windows, with gratings on the internal side. The inside consists of a nave and two aisles and a central round apse. Two inscriptions enclosed in the wall of the right aisle attest the former Roman building.
