The large monastic complex of Madonna delle Virtù e San Nicola dei Greci, is one of the most important examples of what is known as ‘negative space architecture’ and is used as a venue for prestigious contemporary art exhibitions. It is worth mentioning the Chiesa di Santa Barbara, a rock church consisting of 3 spaces: narthex, presbytery and apse. The exterior features some ancient tombs carved out of the rock.
