[More from Maratea's Historic Center]

You then go back along the same route and then take the narrow alley that leads from the church of the Chiesa Maggiore to Piazza Buraglia, where, on the main street of the village, you meet the Obelisk of S. Biagio.
Raised in 1738, it consists of three elements: the stone base, with the emblem of the Bourbon of Naples and that of Maratea, the marble column, according to the tradition caught in Cala Jannita and the statue of S. Biagio, Neapolitan opera of 18th century.
Behind the obelisk is the church of the Annunziata, built in the 16th century: two 16th century stone lions side by side with a bezel painted in the seventeenth century.

A little further on is the church of the Immaculate Conception, built in the 18th century as the seat of a congregation, where the original nucleus of the church, which deserves a visit, emerged during the renovation works.

The convent has a two-storey cloister, with a double row of semicircular arches resting on columns of ionic type.
Adjoining is the church of the Rosary with porch and large single room.
The interior decoration dates back to the early 17th century.
Behind the monastery, take the road leading to Villa Comunale, which then goes to Buraglia Square, and on the left you will see a large square where the Capuchin monastery, built in 1615 and used until 1866, The operations center of the Ministry of Culture, receives objects found in the territory, including amphoras and anchors recovered in Santo Janni.
Next to the convent are the Capuchin chapels, a complex of three small loudspeakers with frescoes from the late 16th century.
