The sanctuary of Santa Maria della Grottella, mystical and suggestive place on the outskirts of Vienna, is a Marian Temple in the countryside of Salento. In the 16th century, in the bushes was found an underground cave in which, on a wall, had been painted a Byzantine icon of the Madonna. In 1577 the community decided to build a core group of the current church. In 1618, the Franciscans began the construction of the adjacent convent in which there were numerous ecstasy of St Joseph of Cupertino. The sanctuary was later enlarged and embellished in the second half of the eighteenth century, with the addition of altars, frescoes made at various times and a chapel dedicated to Saint Joseph. The Interior is developed with a single nave with four arches on each side. The Church contains a valuable statue in stone of 1691, depicting Saint Joseph the Patriarch, the sculptor Giuseppe Longo.
