An underground church and sanctuary set in an old fortress, Santuario di San Michele Arcangelo still operates today. The sanctuary itself is inside a cave: church members will remind you to explore quietly. The hall is decorated with objects and artwork devoted to Saint Michael. Be careful when climbing the steps leading to the church, as they can be a bit rocky and difficult to navigate. If you want to attend a service, check online for the church’s schedule. Our Monte Sant'Angelo trip builder makes visiting Santuario di San Michele Arcangelo and other Monte Sant'Angelo attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Once again, we had the pleasure of visiting this basilica is unique in its kind, both for the fact that it is located in a cave for the condition to be a celestial basilica. Despite the incredible amount of visitors arrived to the cave you can still stay in recollection. Experience to make absolutely.

  • Very solemn place with a nice ambiance. Lots of insight into the history of the town and it's devotion to the Archangel Michael
  • Lovely shrine to visit. The rector took us into the lower part of the cave where the first chapel was.
  • A personal and amazing experience for myself and my family. Worth the hair raising drive up the mountain.
  • Beautiful shrine, rich in history, surrounded by the lush Gargano hills and amazing views of the sea from the nearby village.
  • Nothing to say, I m without words
