The charming Church of Santa Restituta is meeting going down through Via Mazzini before Piazza Galeotto Marzio.

The Church of Santa Restituta and the Monastery of the Clares.

Was the bishop of Narni Pierdonato Cesi in 1563 to give, at the instigation of the noble Paolo Orsini from Narni, the ancient parish church of Santa Restituta to the Franciscan Sister Eusebia Borghese from Siena, to erect alongside it what became the Monastery of the Clares.

The works of the church and the monastery ended in the first years of the 1600, even thanks to the financial support of the marquise Paolo Emilio Cesi who even built the major altar and painted the canvas by the Cavalieri d’Arpino.
