Seaside Piedigrotta Church, situated near the entrance to an ancient Roman tunnel, is located within a cave carved out of tuffaceous rock and supported with hewn arches and pillars. The inside is filled with statues recalling biblical stories, including the Madonna di Pompei and the Angel of Death. Get lost among the stony personages before making your way down to the beach for a stroll along the windblown coast.

Piedigrotta Church Reviews
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. more »
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... more »
This place is stunning i absolutely loved my visit here. The little church on the beach is well worth a visit and also the real history into this church is worth looking up. It is only €3.00 entry charge for as long as you want. It is interesting too see all the hand made stone statues. The Beach is absolutely stunning and clean. It's not usually to busy, but a lot of tourist buses stop to visit here. There are little bars/cafe's here too so it's the perfect place to pull over. Just 10 minutes drive along the road from here there is Pizzo another place worth a visit.
Cute chapel built into the stone wall. Wörth a visit if you are in the area. The legend behind it is also not to bad.
