Commune in the province of Matera

The town is very old. It was mentioned as ‘Rotunda Marinis’ in 1261, a name probably due to its particular position, opposite the Jonian Sea.

There are buildings enriched by beautiful portals.

The mother church dedicated to Santa Maria delle Grazie, which contains the wooden statues of Mary Immaculate, Our Lady of Graces and St. Anthony, is very beautiful and so is the church of Sant'Antonio da Padova, belonging to the Franciscan monastery of the ‘Zoccolanti’ monks.

The church and the monastery, built in 1652, were inhabited by monks until 1862, when they became state property owing to the Siccardi law. The construction contains a very beautiful polychrome marble altar and some statues portraying St. Francis of Assisi, St. Pasquale Bairo and St. Rosa from Lima.

The town beaches, visited by a lot of tourists, have been improved through the creation of a lot of facilities for tourists.
