Cappella La Benedetta

Via San Francesco, 14, San Marco Argentano, (Cosenza)

Francis of Paola entered the La Riforma convent at the tender age of thirteen, to fulfil his parents' vows, pronounced when the young boy had fallen seriously ill. It was a determining experience in the life of the future Saint, who would often retreat to a small natural cave in the vicinity (today where the Municipal Villa stands). On this site an initial votive structure was erected and in 1762 the stonework chapel was renewed; it has remained similar in appearance ever since, and continues to be a destination of devoted worshippers.
