What a lovely surprise! We happened upon the Oratory by accident— while looking for another sight. The frescos are very beautiful, and the gentleman who greeted us gave us a fascinating background of the art as well as St. Cecelia. Plus, there is no charge

This is a small chapel entirely decorated with a cycle of Renaissance paintings of the life of St. Cecilia. Charming and peaceful, and there is no entry fee -- a welcome surprise.

We stumbled on this gem by accident. The frescoes are beautiful and the subject matter is violent and disturbing.The legacy is that this marvellous space is used to perpetuate the arts. Wonderful music concerts are hosted here and well worth attending.

Lovely late 15th century frescoes in a little chapel. Free admission. The cloisters outside are pretty. It is a small but pleasant place.

We visited here to see the fresco cycle of the life of St Cecilia. It is a really small church where concerts are held regularly but well worth a visit.
