An underground church and sanctuary set in an old fortress, Santuario di San Michele Arcangelo still operates today. The sanctuary itself is inside a cave: church members will remind you to explore quietly. The hall is decorated with objects and artwork devoted to Saint Michael. Be careful when climbing the steps leading to the church, as they can be a bit rocky and difficult to navigate. If you want to attend a service, check online for the church’s schedule.

  • Beautiful place! The priest was so kind and helpful! The staff at the gift shop was awesome and helpful. It was quiet and everyone was respectful.
  • One of the few non consecrated places of worship and holy eucharist, as it is believed that the archangel Michael consecrated the church himself. It contains the cave of the apparitions of st Michael ND forms a straight line with all the other shrines dedicated to st Michael.
