The parish of St. Francis Xavier was once a church dedicated to Our Lady of Grace and only later was dedicated to St. Francis Xavier. The building stands above the road and is accessed via a double staircase leading to the outdoor courtyard and then to the churchyard. It has a Renaissance portal in stone green and a kiosk with two arches for the bells. The simple façade is framed in green tuff stone. The interior has a nave with a barrel vault, while the apse has a vault. All inside are: Alfonso Di Spigna Altarpiece of 1741 “S. Francis Xavier and St. Ignatius of Loyola in front of the Madonna delle Grazie”, canvas “Deposition from the Cross” of the forian painter Gennaro Migliaccio (1766), and the statue of St. Francis Xavier, recently painted with “S Vito Martire” of the Florentine forian painter.
