The Romanesque rose window on its façade, which is similar to that of the cathedral, as well as the church’s rampant arches, confirm it was founded in the13th century. The church underwent restoration in 1744 and was further embellished inside with valuable and rich rococo-style stucco decorations which cover up the original Romanesque interior. The local stone and stucco altars and the paintings in the side chapels with their stucco frames all have the same decorative style. Of particular importance are the paintings by Vito Antonio Conversi, Giovanni Donato Oppido and Domizio Persio, as well as the polychrome stone statues of St. Peter the Martyr and the St.Mary of Health dated 1518, by sculptor Stefano da Putignano.
