The Convent of Sant’Antonio da Padova, built in 1515, develops around a quadrangular cloister with round arches supported by columns. The church has a wide façade with a quadrangular arcade.

In the ‘pronaos’ and in the cloister there are some frescos by Giovanni Todisco. In the Eastern part of the Convent, Giovanni Todisco painted the story of the Life and Passion of Christ and the Story of the Franciscan Order; in the Refectory he painted the Last Supper. In the Northern part of the building there are some frescos by Giovanni Todisco’s son, Girolamo Todisco, representing the Deposition, Christ Dead, the Resurrection, the Transfiguration, the Descent of the Holy Spirit, the Ascension, the Virgin in Glory and Saint Francisco.

All these frescos were painted around the third decade of the XVII century.
