Dedicated to the Vergine Assunta (Lady of Assumption), this was the seat of the Minervino Bishops from the 11th century up to 1818 (the year when the diocesis was suppressed). Rebuilt on the same area of what used to be a Norman construction, it was consecrated in 1608. The façade, of white limestone, has a Romanesque rose window, and three Renaissance portals. On the left one you will find a high relief of The Virgin and Child, probably rescued from the ancient building. On the left there is the bell tower, a Renaissance construction that was rebuilt in 1924 after it collapsed. The inside, which has a wooden vaulted ceiling has three naves separated by columns. On the central altar (18th century) there is a small marble chapel that houses the Holy Crucifix, called the “Black Crucifix”, a prestigious work in wood from the 17th century.
