Descrizione

Considered to be oldest worship place in Troia, the Church of St. Basilius was mentioned in a parchment of Montecassino in 1087. The façade preserves the original portal, as well as the double-lancet window and two friezes, while on the left side are two decorated doors, one of which topped by a Roman lintel. The interior, on a Latin cross plan, is punctuated by eight columns ending in capitals with simple angular leaves. Moreover, it retains a seventeenth-century baptismal font, a fresco depicting the Baptism of Christ and an eighteenth-century canvas of the Virgin and Child with Saints.
