STATUS OF THE WORKS OF THE CHURCH

This week the complicated works of relocation of the stones of the vault of the presbytery of the church, damaged in the earthquake of 1755 and with the consequent deterioration of the subsequent 266 years, have been completed.

Now the tasks that remain are grouting cracks and cleaning, in addition to installing the shields of the high altarpiece that were dismantled to allow work on the vault and rear arch. Then he will have to give a new cleaning to the entire altarpiece. We hope that we will soon be able to return worship to the church, which is its legitimate function.

To illustrate what has been said, I put some images of the state of the wall and vaults before the intervention and some of how the restored arches are becoming.
