Pietraperzia – Church of San Nicolò

Via San Nicolò, Pietraperzia, EN, Italia
Chiesa a Pietraperzia - Chiesa San Nicolo

The Church in Pietraperzia dedicated to San Nicolò, originally an Arab mosque, was later transformed into a Christian church during the Norman domination.

During the event “Open Churches” organized in Pietraperzia and held on May 17, 2015, an ancient chest was found in one of the attics of the church, which contained a painting of the Virgin with Child and San Francesco kneeling by an unknown author.

According to critics, the painting dates back to the 16th century.
