Rocky settlement of the Convent
A short distance from the Castle, following the lower course of the Busaitone. The name is perhaps due to the existence of some very evident traces of church architecture. Housed in an absolutely almost inaccessible site, the convent looks like a complex open in the heart of a cliff plunging into the bed of the Cava Ispica. On the upper floor a corridor is visible on which there are very small rooms, rectangular or square, resembling real cells. The supposition that it may be a "monasterion" is supported by the small rock oratory, dedicated to Santa Alessandra, built a short distance from the Convent
