Edificio di culto

Chiesa di San Nicola di Bari

Largo Giuseppe Ricucci, 1, Cetraro, (Cosenza) Tempo di lettura: meno di 1 minuto

Probably built around the IX century, the Church can be considered as one of the oldest edifices in Cetraro. Originally consisting of a single nave, after the building of the adjiacent Palazzo del Vicario,  the church was enlarged on the right side with an aisle and a sacristy. On the central altar there is the statue of S. Nicholas and, on the top,  a Christ Pantocrator, blessing the observants with his right hand. On the left side of the altar, the statue of Our Lady of the Mount Carmel, wearing a gold Crow, that was realized thanks to the devotion of Cetraro's people. In the aisle, a group of statues representing the ecstasy of S. Margherita Maria Alocoque.
