  • One of the best preserved cave asked. Although used as a dwelling by a family in the 1950s some frescoes are still visible. The cave that housed the church retains a flavor of old and evocative. To visit.

  • Is the location of the Benedictine convent and church that previously had. And moved to another convent, left, and cave Church was reused as the residence of the resident, and was used as a meeting place or warehouse. Cathedral of the old church and at the end, it was used as a stables for livestock. It is at the entrance of the old church remains as a church. Beautiful Veres co painting was painted and peeked inside the entrance. Was not allowed during the tour for the internal frescoes was introduced with pictures outside.

  • The Church of Santa Lucia alle Malve is part of a circuit of 3 churches which can be visited on the same ticket costs 6 euros. This church is quite impressive, entirely carved out of the tuff Rock dated to 9 century AD at the entrance is given a brochure with some explanations. I have been particularly fortunate to asked some questions to Gianfranco and was part of the cooperative that runs the site. Gianfranco responded with skill and passion to my curiosity and this has made a difference to me because I was able to fully appreciate this site. I invite you to do the same. Thanks Gianfranco!
