Fairly average small church in a great location.....

If this church was on a roadside or middle of an average Itallian town I doubt it would rate much of a write up. It is, however, on top of a hill overlooked by the Statua del... read more

It seems that most other reviews are of the site, the statue and the bars, not the church itself. Therefore I would like to rate the church only: It is very very unimpressive!

This unassuming little church sits at the top of the mountain over looking the commune de Maratea. Watching over the Church and all the local villages is a Huge 100ft plus statue of Jesus. It is totally awe inspiring and calm. A must see if visiting the area

If you are going up to this location just to see the Church, try and check before you go to avoid being disappointed if it is not open. It is a great little church with the relic of St. Biaggio (St. Basil), the patron saint of throats. If you do happen to take a chance and go here, your time... More
