Inside, the Church houses a chapel built in 1586 to hold a silver statue-reliquary of St. Albert of the Abbots, precious work by Vincenzo Bonaiuto. Next, it is still preserved the cell where the Saint lived, which houses the remains of Blessed Luigi Rabatà. Under the altar, still remains (whole body) of St. Clemente Martyr.
