The Church of San Nicola da Bari in Favara, also known as the church of San Nicolò, according to tradition is dedicated to San Nicola da Tolentino.
It is a church already present in the 14th century and it is perhaps even older than the church of Itria.
The church has a Baroque facade with a pointed portal; the interior has a single nave.
In 1584 the building was annexed to a hospital for the sick, active until the eighteenth century.
In ancient times it was thought that a hidden treasure was found near the church, for this reason, in the past, someone has carried out excavations without achieving any results.
