Sanctuary of the Madonna of the Letter

Opposite the sea, this graceful sanctuary was built in 1710, on the site of a Norman era building: this has been inferred from the crypts brought to light in which have been found diverticules for the dead from the paleo-Christian era, coins from the Arab-Norman period and remains of the Aragonese style. On an 18C altar is an attractive Virgin and Child. There is also a liturgical chancel in sculpted wood (modern) and an individual Baroque candelabrum.
