Originally medieval Cathedral of St. Michael the Archangel Cariati was originally dedicated to St. Peter. The structure , built in the fifth century AD, has suffered in the course of the eighteenth century work of expansion and renovation . The current name was adopted in the course of 1741. Nicholas was the Bishop of Cariati Goliath that brought about the transformation of the church into a neoclassical temple and , in 1857 , inaugurated the new facility built by the master Carmine Roger, designed by architect Horace Neapolitan snapper .The façade is preceded by a portico , from which rises the bell tower , built in 1649. Architectural Of particular interest is the dome covered with tile polychrome majolica . Dome that has been recently restored , the work you have completed in December of 2012.The interior has three naves, separated by massive Ionic columns , arranged in pairs. In each aisle there are three altars. Of particular interest are the chapels dedicated to the Blessed Sacrament and San Cataldo , the latter with an artistic Baroque marble altar , the work of the Neapolitan school of 700. On the high altar is placed a painting of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary , painted by Raphael Aloisio Calabria . On either side of the chancel stalls are placed in a precious wooden choir century in baroque style. Sky on the ceiling of the nave is the mural painted in tempera depicting St. Michael the Archangel banishes Lucifer and the rebellious angels from Heaven , the work carried out in 1912 by the Neapolitan painter Luigi Taglialatela .
