Chiesa Madre di San Nicola

Ruoti, Basilicata Italy

Roman Catholic

The church dates from at least 1620, though it was demolished and rebuilt in the early 1800s. The bell tower is earlier than the rebuilt church, built of stones carried by local citizens. Damaged by earthquake in 1857, the height of the tower was lowered. Weather permitting, there is a process of SS. Nicholas and Lucy on December 13th.
