"Spectacular Work"

This name comes from lucus or 'wood,' and can be explained by the presence of a temple at the back of the church, built in the 12th Century. It is said that the baptismal font on the meadow in front of the church was the cup of Orlando, head of the legendary group of paladins who liked to come here. The facade preserves its Medieval origins in the stone portal with a rounded arch. On the walls are little arches decorated with motifs. The interior has three naves separated by two rows of four columns with a central pillar. On the left pillar is a stand by Nicodemo, from 1159. It is richly decorated and surrounded by arches with four columns. Biblical scenes are painted around the structure, that is a work of stucco. On the columns along the nave are some traces of remaining frescoes. In the apse is the scene of universal judgement dating from the thirteenth century. To reach the church take the Moscufo exit at the north east, and take the right road at the crossroads. Soon after you will reach the church.
