  • Welcoming church where absolute protagonists are the "three Chaste Agni" and the devotion of the country dedicated to them. Interests in the votive candles and the painting of the martyrdom of three Saints.

  • The 10 of may we celebrate the great feast of the martyr Saints Alfio, Cirino and Filadelfio. Tradition requires a visit to the shrine for the traditional lighting of a candle. It also requires the purchase of the typical fresh garlic, whose smell permeates all the surroundings. A huge commitment comes from those participating in the rites of the Vare, of procession, of rich Fireworks. A part of the rites, very addictive, requires a pilgrimage of several Km, barefoot, carrying a heavy candle that is lit at the entrance to the Sanctuary. These candles are offered to the Saints to thank or ask for graces and is directly proportional to the value that the Pilgrim from the grace requested. The Museum inside the sanctuary contains thousands of votive offerings, proof that faith and despair together make miracles.

  • The atmosphere during the feast of 3 Saints (May 10) often reaches high levels of popular participation and mysticism. Inside, near the sacristy there is a well stocked Museum of votive offerings, mainly composed of popular paintings covering the historical arc of the past century: not to be missed!
