    The Sant Elia Church situated in Castel Sant'Elia is a rare find, is not a simple basilica is the soul of a country. The first impact with the basilica is breathtaking, so much beauty spreads in front of the eyes of the spectator who just have to admire it and contemplate it in a mystical silence. Separate chapter deserve those in other reviews complaining about the entrance fee of 5 euros, show little relevance to trip it is clear that you have never visited other countries. In any other European country a monument that would be packed with tourists, happy to pay an entrance fee as well reasonable, but here we are in our beloved Italy where our beauties are never exploited but rather we complain. The Interior of the basilica it is hard to tell, is hard to describe the emotion that one feels in front of the huge mosaic, frescoes and the crypt containing the tomb of St Athanasius and St Nonnoso's day. Finally, call it a wonder appears as reductive, the basilica di Sant'Elia is, without fear of contradiction, the eighth wonder of the world.

    a village carved into the stone between lush forests, a small Romanesque church with frescoes, nicest people in the country, a cultured and passionate guardian; This village is well worth a visit and an incentive to the restoration of the houses; Surely we must pay an entrance fee to help finance the maintenance work.

    I am an advocate of the entrance ticket, if it contributes to ensure the maintenance of the site, but is set to boost visits not to stop them ...
