In the old centre there are many buildings and monuments of great historical and architectonic value, amongst them there are also many churches. Maratea is in fact also known as the town of the 44 churches, were many artistic works are kept.

Among the most beautiful churches there are San Vito’s Church, the oldest one, Santa Maria Maggiore, which faces the square with the same name, the Church of the Annunziata, where a marble relief and a bust-reliquary of San Biagio are kept.

In some of the churches in Maratea there are some late Byzantine frescos and some others of the XVII century. Some churches are decorated with stone lions; some of them show paintings of the XVI century and canvases of the XVIII century, old coats of arms, wooden choirs of the XVIII century and many other masterpieces.
