San Roque Church

Built in 18th century.  Gutted by fire in 1901. It has been enlarged and remodeled several times.

Sadly its been almost 20 years that it has been undergoing renovation. The 17th century icon of the Blessed Virgin of Solitude of Porta Vaga is enshrined here.

I miss the old church whose floors should have just been elevated and the altar remodeled rather than destroying the whole structure even without sufficient funds to build a very high structure that is no way suitable in its location. Another thing I can’t understand how come the altar seems to be in the last to be constructed while the convent was the first they finished.
