Saint Joseph's church

   


The church was first named after Saint Mary, and only in XVII Century it acquired its current name.
Originally, two altars were located inside it, together with a statue of the Virgin Mary and a crypt to bury the poor who died at the hospital. 
Moreover, the walls were rich in frescoes that have been destroyed by time. 
The church was restored twice over the years: first in 1761, when the stucco altars and the vaulted ceiling were built, then in 1995 by the municipality of Sigillo , the CEDRAV -Anthropological documentation Centre in Valnerina- and the Soprintendenza per i beni culturali- a peripheral organ of the Ministry of Culture.  Nowadays, even if not deconsecrated, the building hosts conventions under the auspices of the municipal administration.
