Vi invitiamo a visitare la chiesa di San Legonziano posta sotto il santuario del Miracolo Eucaristico con i bellissimi affreschi cinquecenteschi; al livello della piazza del Plebiscito, i lavori di recupero condotti nell’ultimo ventennio su alcuni locali già adibiti ad attività commerciali hanno reso possibile riportare alla luce una vasta aula coperta a botte con conci di pietra, databili alla fase medievale (XI-XII secolo), all’epoca dell’insediamento dei Benedettini, preesistente a quello dei Francescani, del 1252, identificabile con la chiesa dedicata a San Longino della quale restano anche alcuni frammenti di affreschi raffiguranti Sant’Antonio Abate e San Giovanni Battista e la testa di una Madonna, che faceva parte di una Crocifissione oggi perduta.

Nella chiesa è presente una vasta aula quadrangolare, un tempo sede della Confraternita dei Raccomandati, sottostante l’antica sagrestia di San Francesco, affrescata tra la fine del XV e gli inizi del secolo XVI con Scene dell’Apocalisse che sono state recuperate con un paziente lavoro di restauro dal 1990 al 2000.

In the area below the Sanctuary of the Eucharistic Miracle at the level of the Piazza del Plebiscito, the restoration works carried out in the last two decades of some rooms used for commercial activities have made it possible to discover a vast barrel-vaulted room with stone quoins, dating back to the medieval period (XI-XII century), at the time of the settlement of the Benedictines, preexisting to the Franciscans, in 1252, identified with the church dedicated to St. Longinus, of which there are also some fragments of frescoes depicting St. Anthony Abbot and St. John the Baptist and the head of a Madonna, which was part of a Crucifixion, now lost.

In the church you find a big hall square, once the headquarters of the Brotherhood of the Recommended, below the old sacristy of St.
Francis, painted in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth century with scenes of the Apocalypse that were recovered with a painstaking restoration from 1990 to 2000.
