Church of St.John the Baptist and Blessed Virgin Mary 'of the Gate'

The church was erected in 1521 to replace a pre-existing church outside the town walls, at the entrance into the Borgo, in front of the Gothic gate. The 15-meter tall bell tower was added to it in the 1898. The central part of the church contains an altar with a stairway and a painting of the Madonna and Child which, according to a legend, appeared here on a fig tree, just like Zacchaeus who climbed a fig tree in the Bible.
