    Getting here: The building is only partially accessible to disabled. There is no public transport.


    The oratory is located in the park of Montòvolo.
    It probably dates back to the XIII century; the oratory could perhaps be an imitation of the sanctuary of the Mount Sinai. The interior has two bays and cross vaults; it is decorated with XV century frescos made by an unknown artist and depicting Saint Caterina, the Crucifixion, the Last Judgement and hell. The frescos have been removed for preservation reasons. In front of the modern altar lies the small XIII century sarcophagus of Sant'Acazio.
