The Mother Church of Brolo, dedicated to Maria Santissima Annunziata, is the main building of worship in the village.
It was built in 1764 at the behest of Vincenzo Abbate and was dedicated to the patron saint of the city.
The façade , characterized by alternating pink plaster and stucco pilasters, has a simple portal decorated with limestone volutes. On the left side stands the bell tower with a domed roof.
The interior, with a single nave, ends with the altar where the nineteenth-century Gestatoria Chair of particular artistic value is located. Along the nave there are eight chapels which host frescoes dating back to the eighteenth century and various statues of saints.
