Saint Mary of All Graces church

The parish church of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Caprile, whose origins date back to the late 14th century, is a testament to the rich history and cultural heritage of the region. Initially perhaps a Romanesque building, the church has undergone several remodels over the centuries, as evidenced by the various architectural and decorative styles, which include Romanesque and Baroque elements. On the facade facing the small square is a fresco depicting St. Christopher, dating from 1664, whose enormous size allowed pilgrims and monks on their way to Monte Cassino to receive his blessing “from a distance.” Its interior, consisting of a single nave, holds precious treasures, including some frescoes recovered from the nearby rock church of Sant’Angelo in Asprano and valuable paintings, including one from 1586.
