The churches range in ages and architectural styles, as well as in size and ornamentation. The Duomo of St. Paul is done in the Romanesque style. The dome is octagonal in shape, and the ambulatory is simply amazing. The church also contains valuable artifacts such as paintings by Francesco Solimena and a pre-Romanesque sculpture of St. George and the dragon. The town also has the baroque style church of San Francesco delle Monache and the 10th century Benedectine Abbey of San Lorenzo.
