 Rock Sanctuary of Demeter and Persephone

Temple of Demeter (Church of San Biagio)

From the terrace of the Temple of Demeter (Church of San Biagio), through a staircase carved into the rock, you reach the underlying sanctuary dedicated to Demeter and Persephone (XNUMXth-XNUMXth century BC). The place is also known by the name of the rock sanctuary of San Biagio. The Sanctuary is completely excavated inside the hill. The structure consists of two caves in natural parts and a third completely artificial cave. It is probable that the place was a seat of worship even before the arrival of the Greeks by the indigenous population.
