Church of Sant'Elia

What to see in Peschici, Foggia, Apulia


The Church of Sant'Elia is the Mother Church of Peschici, built around 1200 with large boulders of marble stones, coming from the quarries in the area.
Its interior, with a Latin cross plan, shows a remarkable triumphal arch, a beautiful high altar and six side chapels, two located on the left and four on the right.
Of great importance are the three Latin inscriptions inside the church, one located behind the main altar above the crucifix and the other two located inside two of the six eighteenth-century chapels.
