Church of Saint John the Baptist

It is the oldest part of the Convent of the Poor Clares and was the second parish established in Montecassiano after that of Saint Nicolò. Externally, the church has a rectangular shape with a sloping roof and a double portal, whereas the interior has an octagonal plan with a lobed dome. The decorations of the architectural elements, those of the altars, the cornices on the walls and the dome were made in stucco and include a series of little angels, flowers, shells and volutes. The larger sides are occupied by the counter-façade and by three altars. The walls are articulated by smooth, giant pilasters with varied capitals.
