It appears to have been a small church dedicated to the Madonna di Costantinopoli, and officiated by the Basilian monks. In 1219, a Franciscan order convent was erected alongside. The interior houses the relics of the Blessed Francesco da Durazzo and a statue of the Pietà litica once housed in the rural church of the Madonna di Gallana.[1]
