The first testimonies to the existence of the Nostra Signora di Montenero Church, with three naves, dates back to 1335, and it is the result of a series of renovation works that ended in the 19th century. According to the Byzantine legend from the early Middle Ages, the painting of the Virgin Mary is actually an oil on canvas from the 16th century.
