Santuario di San Michele

Santuario di San Michele Review

Pilgrims have flocked to the nearby town of Monte Sant'Angelo for nearly 1,500 years—among them Saint Francis of Assisi and crusaders setting off for the Holy Land from the then-flourishing port of Manfredonia. Monte Sant'Angelo is centered on the Santuario di San Michele, built over the grotto where the archangel Michael is believed to have appeared before shepherds in the year 490. Walk down a long series of steps to get to the grotto itself; on its walls you can see the hand tracings left by pilgrims.
