On top of the hill called "Calvario" there are the ruins of the ancient Baroque church of Santa Maria della Luce, from 1650.
Here a copy of the Holy Shroud was kept, donated to Carlo Tomasi, First Duke of Palma, by Maria of Savoy; the relic is now preserved in the Collegio Church.
Over the Church there are still the bodies of people died because of plague epidemics between 1550 and 1700.
Julius Tomasi wanted the Calvary; he wanted to repeat the path of Jesus from the palace of Pilate to Golgotha, connecting the town with this hill.
