Not far from historic centre raise the Church of Santo Stefano built in the XVII century with a typical central plan.
It is an example of Baroque architecture which is rich of bas-riliefs, decorated architraves, niches, fluted balusters, and in the end spires.
Inside there are very beautiful stuccoes in Baroque style and a big picture which reproduces Martyrdom of Santo Stefano, work made by the artist Giuseppe Salerno (1570-1632).
At the side of the Church stands out a majestic bell-tower which is surmounted by a polychrome stone cusp.
