Like all towns in the world, cities are identified and recognised, for various obvious reasons, by the important districts that make them up.

In Badolato, the square refers to the upper part of Corso Umberto I, characterised by numerous palaces of bourgeois families, public offices and, therefore, a lack of frequentation by the peasantry.

Among the macro-neighbourhoods there was and still is the Spinetto, the most recent part of the ancient urban settlement, situated between the Castle and the Convent of San Domenico.

The opposite part, to the east, from the church of Santa Maria in Crignetto to the bastion, is still called Jusutèrra.

The southern part of the inhabited area, from the ridge (Corso Umberto I) down to the river Provvidenza, is called Destru.

The northern exposed part is called Mancùsu. It is the oldest part of the town, since it contains the Church of St. Catherine Virgin and Martyr of Alexandria, certainly one of the first to be built. It can also be assumed that in past centuries there was a Basilian coenobium, visible from the Coenobium of Good Health. It is the safest area of the town from the climatic point of view, since it is built on hard rock and is rich in underground cisterns.

The people of Mancùsu are (or rather were) industrious people, and there have been some wealthy farmers from Mancùsu, thanks to the abundance of agricultural products resulting from their hard and passionate work.
