Church
Seaside Piedigrotta Church, situated near the entrance to an ancient Roman tunnel, is located within a cave carved out of tuffaceous rock and supported with hewn arches and pillars. The inside is filled with statues recalling biblical stories, including the Madonna di Pompei and the Angel of Death. Get lost among the stony personages before making your way down to the beach for a stroll along the windblown coast. Make Piedigrotta Church a centerpiece of your Pizzo vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Pizzo family vacation planner.

  • As we drove along the cost weunexpectely stop here and found this famous grotto with its chapel. Must see in Pizzo ;)  more »
  • Really worth a short detour, if you're in the Pizzo - Tropea area! Quite an amount of steps leads there from the road, which could be a challenge, especially on the way up!  more »
  • If you find yourself in Pizzo, this is a must see. The church has an interesting history and the carvings are amazing. The beach views in Pizzo are beautiful too.  more »
