Neo-gothic Chapel – St. Francesco di Paola (at the village)

Via Cavour, 51, 74123 Taranto TA



The small and suggestive Neo-gothic Chapel of St. Francesco di Paola (1881-1898) was built on the commission of Angelo Cecinato. This chapel is dedicated to St. Francesco di Paola and stands out for its particular neo-gothic “fin de siècle” style and the beautiful but also unusual proportions.

This place of worship was designed by the artists Domenico Fago and Aldo Bari and it was built, probably, after the grace received by Angelo Cecinato who miraculously survived a fall into a well.

The Bishops of Taranto and, most importantly, the faithful, showed so much interest in this chapel that it was approved as “public church” by Archbishop Pietro Alfonso Jorio on February 2nd, 1899.

The characteristic sacristy was realized through the renovation of a rural chapel dedicated to St. Girolamo and its is an important testament of big urban operations in the Umbertine era.
