The Cathedral of San Nicola was originally known as S. Maria della Neve, it would seem to date back to 440. At the behest of Bishop Tommaso Speradio, following massive modernization works, in 1606 the church was officially reopened for worship and dedicated to St. Nicholas of Bari. Following the violent earthquake of 1695, which devastated Civita and with it the church of San Donato, the Holy See decided to transfer you to the Cathedral. Thus it was that in 1700, following further restoration and expansion works, it was consecrated to the two Saints Nicola and Donato. Among the numerous restoration and embellishment interventions that followed, the most significant dates back to 1779 when the Cathedral was also consecrated to San Bonaventura. In memory of this event is the large marble epigraph located to the right of the entrance. Inside are preserved works of great value: a 12th century parchment bible, probably belonging to San Bonaventura a painting by Vanni depicting the Magdalene a reliquary made of gold and silver depicting a blessing arm and containing the bones of the arm of San Bonaventura
