The complex includes a church, sacristy, bell tower, and two cloisters as well as housing the “Sacconi” Middle School of Music and the Town Library. The barrel vault of the rectangular Chapter Room is decorated with a fresco of the Crucifixion and Saints. It has been restored and hosts cultural events. The church was remodelled in the 1800s and early 1900s then was used as a granary and later as a movie theater. It is currently being refashioned into a conference venue.
