  • The sanctuary of the Madonna della Grottella combines human and spiritual experience of the great Saint of flights, St Joseph of Cupertino. The sanctuary is preserved icon of our Lady of Grottella in addition to the places where Saint Joseph lived. Nestled in the Park of Grottella cannot be visited by those who want to know Cupertino, the Salento and its history.

  • We saw only the outside was closed, opening "vague". Not worth a visit regardless of faith reasons. The adjacent Park especially for picnics or if you have kids.

  • For those in Salento and near Cupertino, can add a half-hour to visit this place characterized by its history involving the Saint Joseph. Lovely from the outside for its simplicity, even more beautiful inside for the frescoes, the statue of the Saint and his sarcophagus that was preserved for many years. The painting of Mary with the child that was found in a small cave to this place by a shepherd boy, which was built after the Church and convent of the Franciscans. In front of it there is a nice Park to stop and rest.

  • 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.
