Chiesa del Gesù

The Church del Gesù is one of the churches most interesting structurally in the city because in the apse area there are three oratories stacked like a tower according to a social hierarchy: the Oratory of the Congregation of the Nobles, of Artists and, below, that of the Farmers. It is a XVI Century church with a richly decorated interior with a nave and two aisles. In the vault are frescoes by the Genoese painter Giovanni Andrea Carlone portraying the stories of Joshua (1656). The façade was restored in 1934.
