Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta di Roseto Valfortore

Photo gallery


From the main square of Roseto, dedicated to Bartholomew III of Capua, you reach through the Arco di Terra in the historic center of the village and the Church dedicated to the Assumption is the building that welcomes the visitor.

The building, a majestic stone architecture, was built in 1507 by the feudal lord Bartholomew III of Capua, who between the fifteenth and the sixteenth century brought Roseto to its maximum splendor, on a pre-existing place of worship which is supposed to date back to 752 A.D. year in which are the first citations of "Rosito".

Over the centuries the Church has undergone several transformations, starting from the early 800’s until the post-war period in 1945. The most radical led to the current structure, incorporating adjacent housing, with the addition of the Cappellone and the rise of the central vault.

Worthy of note is the magnificent entrance balustrade, with panels in local gray-greenish stone worked '500. The panels, sculpted by local workers, represent Christ blessing, the coat of arms of the feudal lord who sponsored the construction of the building and the wild rose, symbol of the village. Other valuable elements are the main portal, richly carved, the architrave with inscription of 1507 on the secondary door, the splendid holy water font of 1598, the bell tower with square roof and terrace, all by local stonemasons.

Inside, of valuable value the three wooden statues of the Neapolitan artist Francesco Saverio Citarelli and the two beautiful marble altars placed in the Cappellone.
