The church of
S. Maria dei Minniti

Founded by the nobleman Pietro Minniti, from whom it took its name, the church of S. Mary stood, according to Prota – “where the Palazzo Hyerace stands”. It was completely destroyed in the 1783 earthquake and subsequently moved to the church of S. Maria di Valverde, otherwise known as Badia, a real jewel of 1700s art.


The church of
San Leo

The church of San Leo was built by local hands in the 1700s. This religious edifice, whose layout is that of a Latin cross, housed the confraternity of the Immacolata until 1842, the year in which they were transferred to the church del Carmine. Subsequently the church was de-consecrated and turned into a Municipal Theatre, today a conference hall.
