Saint James

Story of the church

The Church, aisleless, was built probably, around the the end of the XVI c. It is dedicated to Saint James, but as De Rosis wrote ( Cenno storico della citta' di Rossano , Naples 1838) it has hosted, by order of archbishop Pignatelli, the former parish of Saints Cosma and Damiano since 1618 . These saints were two doctors who for love of their neighbours , took care of the sick people of every social class , thus in compliance with the Evangelical precepts "Gratis acceptis, gratis date". Saints Anargirti Square, just a few metres from the Church, is named after them .
