The original church of St. Nicholas of Bari was built between the thirteenth and fourteenth century and was later rebuilt in 1587 by changing completely the original building. The interior has a single nave. To the right of the main entrance you can see a fresco of the late sixteenth century depicting the baptism of Jesus in which the background scenery is just the castrum of San Polo, with its defence towers and the original city walls. The altar painting depicting St. Nicholas is instead of the fifteenth century. The bell tower was built on an old tower of the city wall.
