The Rock chapels of Madonna de Idris and San Giovanni in Monterrone

Partly built and partly cut out of a rock rising above the Sasso Caveoso, this chapel dedicated to the Holy Virgin (Madonna dell’Idris) may be traced back to the 14th -15thC.
It carried out its function until the 1940s, with some of the most important religious festivities being celebrated there.
Through a narrow pathway one can access the rock chapel of San Giovanni in Monterrone, which is entirely carved out of the rock. It originally served as a baptistery and was later transformed into a burial site.
The chapel has one nave with a slightly elevated presbytery and along the walls frescoes of noteworthy workmanship may be admired.
