Chiesa Santa Maria dei Centurelli - Caporciano (AQ)

The church lies on the cattle-track from L'Aquila to the Adriatic coast.

Place of rest and lodging for shepherds and sheep traveling towards the seaside pastures, the church has an imposing Renaissance faade dated 1558.

The interior consists of a single nave concluding in a polygonal apse with two chapels on the sides, which are the arms of the transept. Under a triumphal arch there is a Baroque altar.

Built against the right wall of the church there is a hall which functioned once as a lodging for shepherds and sheep.
