  • The small church of Piedigrotta is one of the most beautiful places that can be visited, to say the least fascinating impossible not to go there if you are visiting Pizzo

  • Little cave sculpted as a church, for the people interested in it, but with a romantic history and interesting effects of lights for everyone. Very nice and unexpected use of the space.

  • I'm sorry because I don't have six stars. The place is more than incredible. It's on the beach, wonderful sea and it has been carved by a single fisherman and his son after his death. So beautiful. There are sun light effects and springs
  • Mystical place worth to visit. Don't park in the upward square because the previous owner of the cave will ask you a 5 EUR black money to scam you also for even 1 minute of parking. Instead find the white or blue stripes very common in Pizzo. The townhall dedicated guardian was amaizng also to give us a tour of the cave for free.
