Church of Madonne delle Timpe

Set in the woods between a rock face and the overhang dropping into the wild Bisirico valley, it was built in 1549 following the grace received by Pietro Telesio.

Intimate, like a maze, the centre of the village unravels through minute alleyways that seem to spill out of the mouths of majestic stone portals. Fairy-tale faces and floral shapes design the arches, while wrought-iron loggias climb towards the sky.

Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie

In harmony with the style of the small village, the church portal emerges resolutely from the tuffaceous wall, as if swallowing up the square. Alongside, testifying to the deep wound of emigration, stands the headquarters of the Società Operaia di Mutuo Soccorso (Workers’ Mutual Aid Society).
