COVES AND AREAS FULL CAVES AND NATURAL ROCKS
Pizzo is a small village perched on a promontory, in the center of the Gulf of Sant’Eufemia. Famous for its “tartufo”, a typical homemade ice cream, it is called “the city of ice cream”.
The territory boasts 9 km of indented coastline, with sandy beaches alternating with coves and areas full of caves and natural rocks.
Among the places of interest we recommend the Church of Piedigrotta, excavated in sandstone rock by Neapolitan shipwrecks at the end of the seventeenth century to thank God of safe life. At the beginning of the twentieth century Angelo and Alfonso Barone decorated the cave with statues of the rock itself depicting characters from the sacred scriptures. The play of light and shadow that characterizes the interior of the Church is peculiar and accentuates its mystical character.
