Chiesa di Sant'Anna
Territorio: Caserta e Matese
Situated in the homonymous square the Chiesa di Sant’Anna is very important for the people of Caserta since the saint, along with San Sebastiano, is the town’s patron saint. Built on the ancient small church of Madonna di Loreto, the building dates back to the XIX century. Severely damaged from the bombardments in 1943, the church was afterwards completely renovated: the base part and the façade remain of the ancient eighteenth century construction, while the interiors have been renewed in modern style. Among the works inside the church: the eighteenth century statue of Sant'Anna, a symbol worshiped from the devotees, expecially in occasion of the patron saint’s feast, the bust of the Ecce Homo, a statue of Sant'Antonio Abate, a sculpture of the Madonna di Loreto and a series of bronze panels that decorate the facade’s portal resembling scenes from the life of the Madonna and Jesus. On the 26th of July the veneration of the saint reaches its climax when there is a procession through the town’s streets that ends at the Sanctuary.
