“The building has a façade structured on two levels separated by a precious string course. The lower part is characterized by the portal, set in the middle, and, surmounted by the coat of arms of the Costantinian order, framed by grooved pilasters; two niches with tympanum open at the sides. The upper part is articulated by smooth pilasters with ionic capitals. In the middle we find a window with imperfect arch, closed by a coloured glass door representing St. Anthony. At its sides there are two niches in axe with the ones located below. An imposing pediment, surmounted by a cross in stone, complete the top of the façade . A small bellcote camps on the back In the inside, it deserves to be mentioned the high altar, devoted to Our Lady of the Graces represented in the central painting and it is also remarkable also the altar of St. Anthony the Abbot.”
