Church of Our Lady of Sorrows | Addolorata | Old Town
The Church of the Addolarata is located at the end of Via Cavour, right in the historical center of Maratea, almost at the foot of the staircase leading to the highest part of the same and to the Mother Church.
Opposite the church, built in 1620, is the obelisk dell'Addolorata, erected by the will of the citizen Gerardo Laurelli in 1788.
In 1692 the Congregation of Our Lady of Sorrows was elevated, which still today includes a prior and members, and solemnizes the feast on the third Sunday of September.
