Frascineto, church

Inhabitants: 2.289
Altitude: 486 m.above s.l.

The origins are unequivocally arberëshë (16th century), in fact the buildings still bear evident traces of Albanian culture. The Byzantine-style Church of Eianina and SS. Peter and Paul’s Church (12th century) are also worth visiting, same as the Church of S. Maria Assunta and the Church of Purgatory. We recommend excursions on the top of Mount Manfriana and Mount Moschereto, in the Bosco La Fagosa, and on the banks of the Eiano River. The main events in Frascineto are the arberëshë festivals, the celebration in honor of St. Basil, Easter rituals and the commemoration of the dead, which follows the Orthodox ritual.
