The church of San Vito dates back to the early 16th century.

Crucifix of the Angels.  Today the church presents itself  with three naves.   The statue of San Vito is located in the central nave, in this chapel there is an eighteenth-century wooden choir with sculpted eagles, while in the walls of the same chapel there are four sculptures representing the martyrdom of the saint. In the side aisles they are preserved  several altars e  canvases of great artistic value.
