Description: The church was built in 1600 and is dedicated to St. Catherine Virgin and Martyr; previously, in this site, there was only a chapel called Santa Caterenella. The current majestic and harmonious shape of the church is dated 1713, several interventions have embellished, enriched and lengthened the building; the temple is of eighteenth century taste, a Latin cross, with dunking chapels , while the dome rests on four pointed arches developed on many pillars. The façade is also of eighteenth century taste, but it preludes to neoclassical.
