The town of Assoro
Tourism in Assoro
It is situated in San Leone square and the Church is dedicated to the homonymous saint.
It was probably built in the 14th century, and during the centuries it underwent much restoring and what we can see now is different from the original appearance.
The elegant portal of the church facade is a precious work of art, in Catalan style, dated back to the late 16th century.

The interior of the church exhibits several artworks and sacred furnishings by various craftsmen of different times.
It is still possible to admire many works of art such as a sculpture of the Virgin with Child, a marble font (16th century), some wooden sculptures of saints and, last but not least, a valuable silver cross made in the 16th century and kept in the sacristy.
