The Madonna di Coccia is a country church built on an old mule track intensely used by shepherds and pilgrims. In addition to a lack of historical facts, there are no legends connected to this place which may have been home to a group of monks. The church was restored in 1748 by the Vella family, as the inscription on an architrave attests.
