Aieta was founded in the 10th century Byzantine citizens, who escaped Iconoclasm, and built several religious building in which Greek rituals would be performed. Aieta later on became Lauria’s fied, only to be then passed on to the Martiranos, and the Cosentinos. Particular interest attract: St. Mary of the Visitation Church, the church that was built inside the monastery of St. Francis of Assisi’s Order of the Friars Minor, the ruins of the St. Nicholas’ Chapel, St. Vito Martyr’s Chapel, Palazzo Martirano (built in a Renaissance style), the ancient mills and the medieval bridge. Do not miss the festival of fusillo in August.
