There are many interesting highlights to the town of Bugnara, starting with the main square, where you can start exploring narrow pedestrian streets and alleyways, and marvel at the town’s medieval origins, evident in the patchwork of medieval architecture that many homes and buildings feature. The Church of SS Rosario is an imposing feature in the main square. It dates as far back as the year 1602 and retains its late baroque style, featuring relief ceilings, stuccoes, and friezes.
