Energitismo Insight

Behind the sanctuary of the Santissima Annunziata you enter the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception, or "Chapel of Gold", for its barrel vault consists of carved and gilded wooden drawers. The walls are adorned with 19 paintings depicting scenes from the lives of Jesus and the Virgin Mary. Since 2009, this church is twinned with the shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes because the Catholic Dogma of the Immaculate Conception had been pondered by Pope Pius IX in this chapel during his forced stay in Gaeta.
