Significantly reowrked under the pontificate of Pope Leo XIII, of the ancient furniture only the two “olea sanctum” remain with the coat of arms of Cardinal Amato Conti, Lords of Carpineto in the fifteenth century. The interior, a basilica with an apse, has three naves separated by arches. In the rotunda there is a Madonna surrounded by bearer saints, by the artist Virgilio Monti. It is reached by a steep flight of steps. The portal with its bronze panels is by the sculptor Anagni Tommaso Ambrosetti, and tells the Carmelite Order’s religious history, that in the pastoral house for two decades an important female monastery of strict cloister dedicated to St. Anne was placed.
