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.


Works of art in the Church

The interior of the Church of the Addolorata, rebuilt in the eighteenth century in Baroque style, has three well-worked marble altars dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows, San Biagio and S. Francesco di Paola.
On the first there is a sculpture of the Madonna, from the XVIII century, on the second a beautiful painting of the Martyrdom of S. Biagio, by an unknown artist.
