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.

  • Craved in the mountain, reachable through an underground tunnel, impressive santuario. Visit early morning or late afternoon to avoid crowds.  more »
  • A unique place, a cave absolutely to see in its special things. Nice town as well, i suggest to visit the castle too.  more »
  • Amazing place. Incredible architecture leading into the cave below. It was really busy when I went with my family. There is a dress code and shorts are not acceptable or too much bare skin. But really good experience as there was a service ongoing which gave a very unique feel to our visit. Well worth a visit.
  • One of the most beautiful and most spiritual places i have ever been to....once you come here, you will know ♥️
