  • Santa Maria in Betlem Church in Mesagne. Just a simply and small church in the heart of the old town of Mesagne. "The church was built where in 1528 a small deluber was dedicated to St. Mary of Betlem. It was expanded for the gratitude of the mesagnesi that ... were liberated from the plague "by intercession of St. Mary of Health," whose effigy is still on the third left altar. To honor the truth, "In the Platea of ​​the Celestial Fathers it is read that the original painting, of which only the sacred image is kept in a medallion at the top of the altar of St. Anthony (today on a painting celebrating the Glory of S. Pietro Celestino), in 1735 by order of Abbot Alemmo, was halved and other paintings were formed, now lost. "(2) "Subsequently, in 1618, Celestini fathers took over the church, who built the adjacent convent. In 1662 the church underwent major changes, including the reorientation to the east. Other works were carried out at the beginning of the eighteenth century (the rebuilding of all altars) and completed in 1738. At the end of the nineteenth century the vaulted stuccoes were rebuilt. In 1949, to expand the church, the chorus was dismantled and the main altar, precious inlay of polychrome marbles, was set in its place. "(1) The convent, since 1935, is the seat of the Town Hall.
