Beautiful Church with Incredible History In an Ancient Italian Neighborhood of Winding Roads
May 2016 • Family
This church was built at the top of the hill in Old Pomarico. There are a few steps leading up to it. You have really come across a special place if you're at this spot. It doesn't have many visitors, which is incredible considering the history of Old Town Pomarico located on the hill. It is called Our Lady of Sorrow's in English and Chiesa SS. Addolorata in Italian. It's easiest to walk up the hill to the church as the streets are very narrow. There is such history in this church. The church is probably the oldest in all of Pomarico and is thought to have existed in the Normans Period (11th and 12th Centuries).
The address is Via Torquato Tasso, 75016 in Pomarico (Old Pomarico)

This is what is says on the plaque to the church loosely translated:
"Our Lady of Sorrows' Church is probably the oldest ecclesiastic building in Pomarico. It is linked to the origins of the town: It probably existed during the Normans period and it was originally dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel when the estate passed to the county of Montescaglioso. In 1741 the building underwent restoration, then took the title of Our lady of Sorrows and in the same year the dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows Brotherhood was established the only one that still exists today."
