Wonderful old frescoes in a quiet site. We didn't find it in our travel guide but tripadvisor did mention it. Signs at the road lead you easily to the parking.

I have been there the first time 335 years ago. The cave/church was still used as a storage place. Since they have been detected by the historians, it is a outdoor museum. The valley has a great spirit and it is worthwhile to see

30 years ago, I was introduced to this place by an italian friend. It was protected by nets for the olive harvest. A few years ago the commune of Fasano has protected the place. Now you need to wait for the guard to open it....More

Lama means "canyon," and we walked with our guide down to the valley floor, not knowing what to expect. There is a whole system of previously inhabited caves there, dating from the 11th-16th Centuries. We saw an amazing "cathedral in a rock" with the remains...More

This was such a different and beautiful site we visited while vacationing in Puglia. You have a guide that takes you through the countryside by foot to amazing caves. The walk requires decent closed shoes and maybe bug spray. We used a little in May...More

This was totally totally amazing. A cathedral carved into rock with Rupestrian/wall paintings Along dried up river bed with olive trees and cave dwellings. Too good to be true
