Piedigrotta Church, Pizzo

4.3
#1 of 11 in Things to do in Pizzo
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.

    Think that father and son have devoted their entire life to constructing this wonder, invites me to give at least a little tribute. The visit is short but sweet is thinking to imagine that for each figurine carved out of the rock, the skilled hands of that man, day after day, month after month, year after year, they worked patiently to that project. Definitely worth visiting

    The Church has a piece of ancient history, its really worth it. Very beautiful with its stone statues and especially the beautiful statue of the Virgin Mary above the Church.

    Church truly stunning. Gorgeous scenery, clean sea. The Church inside is spectacular! A real cave. The sculptures, which are tightly intertwined with the walls and the stone of the cave, it seems you are created spontaneously without artificial support. The ceiling frescoes damaged but with their antique charm. Besides the statue on top of the madonna is very impressive especially for where it is located! To see!
