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

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
