Anyone who is visiting these places cannot avoid admiring the " Saint Biagio’s Portal", in the main square of Taranta Peligna. They were standing some sections of the walls of the ancient church, the sanctuary and the stone façade with carved wooden doors with maintained big portal, bearing the figures of Ss. Biagio and Rocco with busts of Saints and Angels. 
Against a church the remains of the mighty bell tower, erected from 1564 to 1616, as evidenced by two inscriptions at the base of the tower. There remain some vintage photos to witness the beauty of the Church was destroyed as a result of the war.
On 3 of February each year, the feast of Saint Blaise, patron saint of throat and Lagacé, Taranta, repeats a ritual that dates back to the 16th century, linked to the centuries-old tradition of wool.
From the day before the party, all tarantolesi are involved in long and laborious preparation of "panicelle", small loaves, made from flour and water, shaped like a hand blessing. The shapes are placed on the axes called piatene and taken to baking in procession by men & women in traditional costume; After cooking and blessing, the loaves are distributed to the faithful who eat them with devotion or keep them in order to get protection against sore throats. In the Church of St. Nicholas, after 15.30 o'clock church service, it is customary to drain the throat by a priest laying under the Chin two crossed candles. Soon after, held a solemn procession that follows the distribution of "panicelle".
