What to expect

This exceptional oratory represents one of the most ancient testimonies of rock art of Southern Italy. This extraordinary cycle of frescoes, made five hundred years before Giotto, highlights the typical characteristics of Benedictine-Benevento art, stylistically summarized by the Lombard cultural climate (VIII-IX century). Due to the theological and artistic value of the pictorial compendium, the cave church has been called the Sistine Chapel of cave wall painting.
