Really worth a short detour, if you're in the Pizzo - Tropea area! Quite an amount of steps leads there from the road, which could be a challenge, especially on the way up!

If you find yourself in Pizzo, this is a must see. The church has an interesting history and the carvings are amazing. The beach views in Pizzo are beautiful too.

Quite a place to see all the carvings in a cave at the beach. A long staircase down leads to this fascinating display. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

This church doesn't look very impressive from the outside but inside it's a real gem! First it's bigger than we thought. It has many "alcoves" with different themes. Some of them presented marvelous scenes from numerous sculptures, only natural light carving them from the darkness.....More

Salve! Sabato 13 Maggio 2017 vorrei portare un pullman di pellegrini nella chiesa di Pietrigrotta, non solo per visitarla, ma anche per la Santa Messa. Vorrei sapere se verso le 18:00 è aperta e se c'è un sacerdote che celebra Messa. Veniamo da Roma e Latina, ma non abbiamo un sacerdote con noi. Grazie. E in attesa di una risposta, vi saluto cordialmente e vi auguro una Santa Pasqua. Claudia

Ciao! Credo proprio che vibo pizzo serve un taxi, se sei senza macchina. I bus li mettono solo in estate per i turisti. Oppure adesso mettono a disposizione delle api con cui fanno fare il giro del paese. Dipende dal periodo... More
