History


Description

Grotta di S.Michele Arcangelo is located at the western slopes of Monte Raione, also called S. Ermo. The cave contains the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie. Unlike other cave churches, where the cave replaces a wall and the ceiling of the church, is this a complete church with roof built inside a huge chamber.
