The ancient Church of St. Francesco da Paola was built by the Prince of Villadorata, together with the architectural ensemble of the adjacent tuna fish trap, so that today it is simply called “the church of the Tonnara”. It has been deconsecrated and disused since the end of World War II, the conflicts damaged the structure. The façade has a beautiful portal in Baroque style characterized by a broken pediment. Over the portal there is a round window and the remains of the tower bell. The interior of the church is inaccessible. If you peek through the cracks of the old door consumed by time, you may notice that inside the nave is opened, without roof, and you can admire the remains of the main altar, the side altars and some valuable parts of the eighteenth century old pavement.
Every year in the month of August people celebrate Saint Francesco da Paola, the patron saint of the town.
The new Church of St. Francesco da Paola was built in 1945 by Eng. Corrado Terranova and delivered to the community in 1950. The church has a single nave with a polygonal apse. Inside you can see the Gothic vault that reflects the style of the exterior facade. The structure is made of sandstone, typical material of the place. Less suggestive than the ancient church, this is the Church of faithful for inhabitants, and it is from here that every year the procession of the patron saint starts.
