Carved into the rock at its summit it's the focal point of the town! Very beautiful the view from outside the two churches. Worth the ticket!

A medieval church sitting on top of a monolithic rock and overlooking the Sassi, this church offers multiple, moderately well-preserved (and restored) frescoes inside. It can be visited but no photography is allowed. You get to the entrance after a fairly good climb from the bottom of the ravine.

Location alone makes these churches worth visiting. But it has very good frescoes also and as two linked churches it is unique. Well worth visiting. Biggext negative is no photography.

We visited here and bought the 10€ ticket which gave you entry to 5 different places. Lovely inside, shame you can’t take photos. Frescoes look super old and some seem to have a few layers with a different image overlaying an older one. Some of the frescoes are 11th-12th century and you wonder at the history and so many past visitors! Only small and doesn’t take long to visit but worth a look.
