History and description
The Chiesa di Madonna Immacolata della Cintura is located in Via Menotti De Francesco. It actually consists of two churches, the upper (superiore) and the lower (inferiore) one.
The lower one is dedicated to the Madonna dei Raccomandati and was built in the 14th century.
The present church is the upper one of the two and is still decorated exactly as it was when it was built, in the early years of the 18th century. This church is dedicated to Santa Giusta.
The most striking feature of the facade is the triangular bell tower.
The interior consists of three richly decorated with multicolored plasterwork. The dome is oval in shape.
