The tomb of the alchemist of Philip the Fair

Under the arch of the bell tower, there is an arcosolium tomb dating back to 1304 by Anselmo d'Incisa, alchemist and physician of Pope Bonifacio VIII and the French king Philip the Fair. It is a Roman reuse where the death of Phaedra is sculpted which, today, is replaced by a copy of sarcophagus.

The tomb of the Alchemist, under the arch of the bell tower, is today only a fibreglass copy of the original tomb.
