Works of art in the Church


L’interno della chiesa, un piccolo gioiello di barocco povero lucano, conserva una bellissima tela raffigurante S. Lucia, opera di un autore ignoto del 1755, e un dipinto del martirio di S. Lorenzo, datato al XVIII secolo. 

Sull’altare dedicato al santo patrono, si trova il busto ligneo di San Biagio, dei primi anni del XIX secolo, usato per la celebrazione dell’armistizio dell’assedio di Maratea Castello del 1806. 

L’opera d’arte principale della chiesa è però la splendida tela dell’Annunciazione, di scuola toscana, attribuita a Simone da Firenze, datata al XVI secolo, che orna il presbiterio e l’altare maggiore, in marmo, posto sotto una graziosa cupola ornata con degli affreschi degli evangelisti.
