The church, dating back to the 12th century, was rebuilt in the 16th century and given to the Theatine fathers. Inside, in the second chapel on the right, is an image of the Madonna breastfeeding the Child and angels, dating back to the 13th century: one of the most ancient exemples of Virgo lactans (the breastfeeding Virgin). The tablet depicts the Virgin full bust in the act of breastfeeding her Child, who is in her left arm. The icon is also entitled Madonna of the Chain, relating to a miracle performed on a possessed man who, tied up in chains by his relatives, regained his health after seeing the painting.
