The church of Santa Maria della Scala was built between 1593 and 1610 to house an icon of the Madonna and Child, which turned out to be miraculous. According to tradition, the icon, located beneath the staircase of a house, performed a prodigious cure, quickly becoming the subject of veneration and pilgrimage. The Pope thus assigned the building of the church to the Carmelites. The building has a Latin cross layout, with a single nave flanked by three chapels on each side. The chapel on the left-hand side of the transect still houses the miraculous image of the Virgin holding the blessing Child in her left arm.
