We revisited Offida to see this church as one of us had seen a documentary on television. This imposing church on the edge of the town survived the many mines placed during WW2, making many faithful believe it was a miracle. The vast interior is...More

The church is beautiful inside and out. There's a cost to enter but it's completely worth it as it's quirky inside. Look for the bones!

This is a very unique church with two very different levels. Be sure to check out the grafitti from the 1600's (actually records kept by the monks). The views over the valley are spectacular from the grounds.
