Chapel of Santi Cosma and Damiano
Cappella dei Santi Cosma e Damiano
This chapel is located in the middle of the farmlands of northern Cervinara. It is unknown when it was built, but in 1691 the archbishop Orsini, led by the popular devotion for the saints Cosmas and Damian, nominated an hermit to operate the church and build his residence aside. The interior is simply decorated, and hosts statues of the two saints in papier-mâché that replace smaller, older ones now kept at Sant'Adiutore.
It is only in very recent times that the church has become Sanctuary of Madonna del Bagno
(the new denomination is gradually replacing the old one) as it has been hosting a 18th-century statue of the Virgin Mary, which is also widely worshipped.
Most of the information given comes from a sign in front of the chapel itself.
