NEWS: Restoration of St Gregory’s Statue

DSCN5186The restoration and conservation works on the stone statue of St Gregory, located in the piazza in front of the old parish church, has started today and will be completed within a month’s time.

This is an important statue and has a high artistic value since it is one of the few sculptural works done by the Nazarene Movement in the first half of the 19th Century.
