History

Consecrated in 1623, the Church of Santa Maria dei Redentore was founded with a convent of Capuchin nuns. The nuns remained on the property until 1911, when the convent was suppressed. While the convent itself is no longer standing, it has been replaced with a school. While the church was founded by Capuchin's there is a Franciscan coat of arms carved on the exterior of the building, to the right of the entrance.
