  • It is a small church excavated in the tufa, rich in sculptures which are also carved into the stone. Something amazing, definitely worth a visit.

  • The Piedigrotta Church is a small jewel of the sea, not only a place of worship, but also a magnificent sea cave, where you can admire the interplay between legend and history and the sculptures of the artists. I was particularly lucky to visit the Church in a quiet morning: was sensational offer the guided tour with the noise and the smell of the sea, there attacked. Really wonderful!
