Veglie, despite its modest size, has numerous places of worship that tell the story of the country over the centuries: certainly, the most fascinating place is the Crypt Della Favana hosting frescoes attributable to the ninth century. In the same complex there is the Ex Convent of the Frati Minori of 1579 and recently restored, which for hundreds of years has guarded the precious artistic treasure of the Crypt and which has now been converted into an evocative place of cultural events.
In the village there are also numerous churches, some very small as Santa Maria della Pietà where, in the fourteenth century, took place Greek and Byzantine rituals, or Madonna dell’Iconella Church (1686) with its characteristic octagonal plan. Up to the most important Churches for the community: Giovanni Battista e Santa Irene Church of the ninth century, hosting Baroque architectural elements (such as the altar) and frescoes of Romanesque origin; Santa Maria delle Grazie Church of 1602; B.V. Maria del Rosario and San Rocco Church, from the 1600s, hosting sculptural fragments from the barbarian age.
