LA GRACE DU BAROQUE

"The Cathedral was built in the sixth century on the site of an earlier temple dedicated to Athena and dating from the fifth century BC. Of this ancient building were some columns belonging to the peristyle. The Church has been subjected to restoration interventions over the centuries and at the end of the seventeenth century was severely damaged by an earthquake. The facade, richly decorated, was built in the eighteenth century by Andrea Palma. The bottom has three portals separated by columns, while at the top is the statue of the Virgin of Piliere, within a niche."
