Chiesa di Santa Anastasia

The Chiesa di Santa Anastasia is on the very same street on which I live.   The basilica was started in 1290 and completed in 1481.

It is a beautiful church with several lovely chapels, vaulted ceilings with floral motifs and many frescoes throughout.  Two of the most famous things in the church, however, are the holy water fonts known as “the hunchbacks”.
