Description

The small temple, built in 1759, was a small Catholic place of worship where forced sermons were held in the public square in the early evening for the Jews of the nearby ghetto.

The small temple has a circular plan with a dome supported by six Doric columns. For a long time, during the 20th century, the small room was occupied by a cobbler. It was then recovered by the Superintendency and restored again.
