It's not an easy hike up to the top of the mountain, but it's certainly worth it to see this remarkable temple. While here, be sure to explore the area behind the temple, which serves as one of the primary cavers' entrances to the Grotte...More

It was like walking in Yosemite valley up to a temple in a cave. Nice hike, beautiful caves. Try walking back, it gets so dark in the case that you need a flashlight, pretty spooky!

I would recommend to everyone to take 30-60 mins out of their day and take the 700m walk up to Tempio del Valadier. It is an extremely relaxing and peaceful place at the top and unlike anything I have seen before.

Stumbled upon this by accident and so glad we did! It's quite the climb but there is a nice paved walkway the entire way and benches to stop and rest should you need. It's so fascinating to see this temple built into the cave and...More

If yo9u are in the Genga area, this is one of the two sites I would say are "don't miss" sites. It is truly amazing how this small temple and sanctuary were built inside of a cave. Be warned that the walk up to the...More

For me, an out of condition pensioner, it was a challenging walk up. I counted the stations of the cross which helped me chart my progress! It was certainly worth it. The position of the church is incredible and the small sanctuary is very atmospheric....More

Although this was relatively difficult to find - the small layby on the mountain round - the 700m climb was worth the effort to see this spectacular building in its setting.
