In the St Agatha Church in Bronte there are four stained-glass windows and a wood panel made by Vasile Mutu.

Above the main entrance a circular window with a diameter of cm. 180. A composition that goes back to the rose windows of Gothic cathedrals. In the center, the Blessing Christ and in the twelve segments of the rosette there are small scenes that represent the 12 Great Feasts, an iconography of the first Christian millennium, still present in the Orthodox churches.

Two rectangular windows on either side of the altar area, are dedicated to the patron saints, St. Agatha, which is dedicated to the church and San Biagio, patron saint of Bronte. There are also a circular stained-glass window with St. Nicholas of Bari.

A wood panel, cm. 120x90, is the icon of St. Agatha.

The Stained glass, that represent the Mother of God with two Saints, is from the Capuchin Church in Bronte.
