  • Address: Piazza Dante Alighieri, Tortora

The Chapel of Purgatorio of Tortora’s Piazza Dante Alighieri is characterized by notable symbolic expressions. It is located in an area called mballaturu, dialect word indicating its proximity to one of the towers of the feudal palace. Originally it was located outside the city walls and over time the urban sedimentation has made of it one of the significant elements of urban architecture.

The Church of the Souls of Purgatory was mentioned for the first time in an official document in 1554.
