Consecrated to Santa Maria Maddalena, the Church was built in 1705.
The outside is very painstaking. Of best workmanship are the bell-tower in baroque style dating back to 1762 and the whole front adorned with a XVIIth-century portico dominated by a niche which contains a statue of Maddalena.
The inside has a structure with only nave and keeps still now mostly of original furniture.

Among these a valuable bas-rilief made by school of Gagini and representing Madonna nella grotta (Madonna into grotto) and two canvas of '600 of best workmanship situated in side chapels and representing San Pietro and San Benedetto (made by Pietro Novelli 1603-1647) require particular attention.
Finally a valuable picture painted by Mariano Smiriglio (1561-1636) representing Maddalena is very interesting from artistical point of view.
