  • To be different and worth a visit all three: the Sasso caveoso is different from the sasso Barisano.

  • As it is a cave Church, architectural interest is necessarily very limited and expected especially to see the paintings that adorn the walls. Unfortunately they are in too bad condition so that one can even imagine what they could be. The interest of this visit is therefore extremely limited. There are many other sites in Europe that are far more impressive than this one (especially in northern Greece, in the meteors or Ioannina). Absolutely not necessary.

  • S. Maria delle Malvezzi is part of three churches which can be visited. The frescoes are part of the 12th second part of the 17th. The conservation is influenced by moisture of caves where they are placed, but the overall feeling is wonderful. To visit during the tour of the city.

  • If it weren't for the signs, you'd never guess that this is a church! The small church in the sasso caveoso is achieved entirely by digging the rock and consists of two adjoining each other. As you enter, a small room with an altar dedicated to Saint Lucy, is the place of worship still in use today. The environment that you open at his side instead, which I believe was the original church in its most extended, still maintains the murals, including a particular nursing madonna baby. Among the rock is perhaps the most calls rich in frescoes, but unfortunately also the wettest
