Santo Vito Church
Immemorial popular tradition wants that the church of Santo Vito is the oldest of the village, the current historical center of Maratea, built on top of the district Capo Casale, the oldest in the country.
Of the original exterior appearance of the church, built according to local historians in the X-XI century, only a small medieval window survives in the apse, as the church was heavily restored first in 1883 and then in 1980.
