 rural churches and chapels (16th century) 

In addition to the urban churches, there are a large number of rural churches and chapels which generally take their name from the district in which they are located: Madonna delle Grazie or della Scala (1560) at the foot of Mount Maganoce; Santa Caterina, in the Fusha district; Madonna dell'Udienza, on the homonymous poggetto; Madonna dello Stretto; San Mercurio; Hidden Madonna (E fshehurë); Madonna della Pietà (Shën Mëria e Boshit) a few kilometers from the town on the provincial road to Palermo; Archangel Michael in Sheshi; Maria Addolorata, at the top of the Sheshi. Many of these rural chapels, whose construction is difficult to date, still exist today.
