If you are down this neck of the woods then it is a must see really. You have done it in 5 mins if you want but it is amazing how long people have spent making such an amazing scene.

Visited this grotto whilst on a trip to Pizzo and found it to be very beautiful. Not vey big but the figures carved in to the rock are so beautiful and it only takes about ten minutes. Costs three euros, but I think that helps towards the upkeep

Go before tour buses
Oct 2019 • Couples
I was underwhelmed by this site. I debated if I should give it a 2 rating. Nice location on the beach at the bottom of a bluff. Small church carved out of rocks, if your reading this you already know the story.

Go before tour buses. They make a visit that should be done in 15 minutes stretch to almost an hour. Pushy, rude people who think they have special rights because they are in a group.

No bathrooms down there so be prepared.

Lots of steep steps, not so bad,, it saw plenty of older folks struggling. The water is a gorgeous color and if you want go swimming.

Warning, the gangsters up top will extort you for €5 to park you car. I see little other choices.

The church was beautiful but the parking is a rip off. It cost 5 Euros to park. And we parked only for 30 min.the entry to the church is less than the parking. Park 200 meters before the parking plot.

Unique and beautiful setting
Sep 2019 • Solo
A beautiful and interesting site with an interesting history, part legend part true. The sculptures in a cave, were started by a local in the 1800's. I walked from the centre of Pizzo, I wouldn't recommend this as its on a busy main road with no footpath and takes 30 minutes. Instead take a tuk tuk from the main square, which I did on the return (the lovely owners in a bar across from the steps to the church kindly called for me). Much more fun journey!

Beautiful and ancient little church
Sep 2019
Just visited this church, came by a curious car in the center of the square with my wife. So excited to see the statue in the church and the good sea-view. Must visited.

Facinating Church
Sep 2019
This is a facinating church that is a must see attraction when visiting Pizzo. It is very unique, carved into a grotto. The only downside is you either have to drive there or take a tuk tuk from the Pizzo city center. Recommended visit.

Church by the sea - Labor of Love
Aug 2019
We enjoyed the history of this church from a local historian. It was amazing to see all the different areas and carvings. When you look out the door, you see the beautiful sea just steps away. Paid parking was easy and the steps down safe.

The church is small on the inside but definitely worth checking out. Amazing stone carvings. There is a nice little beach right of the church also. Great way to spend an afternoon.
