Santuario di San Michele Arcangelo, Monte Sant'Angelo

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.

    Awesome venue! I recommend you attend mass in the Grotto-Church is a unique experience and impressive! We'll be back again! Only downside is the parking ... nn handled properly. Fails to optimally manage days of maximum turnout. Recommended!!

    The sanctuary is beautiful and worth every dime. But management is a sadness ... we paid for parking for an hour €5, and fixed. Secured parking fees as a major metropolis. Will never go back.

    Place just wonderful. I highly recommend visiting the Museum with the audio guide because it illustrates very well and fast the path. Very friendly staff.

  • 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.
  • The cave was the first chapel that existed
  • Wonderful place
