The cavern of archangel Michael is a real sanctuary. Try to be there either early in the Morning or after 5 pm

The sanctuary is build deep in the ground. You can really feel the presence of spirituality here. Go if you can. Beware of opening and closing times. They close for long lunch periods.

We visited the underground church and found that we were in the middle of the celebration of mass. Although I have no specific religious belief, I found the combination of the service and the natural location to be very moving.

We aren't religious, so this wasn't a pilgrimage, but it's still an interesting historical building underground that incorporates the sacred cave. We were surprised to find it a much easier walk down (and back up) a large staircase, compared to the description in some other...More

The "must sees" are Matera and the trulli houses in Alberobello. If you get an opportunity to visit the Gargano peninsula, (Vieste), it is also a lovely place to visit.

I recommend also to take the coast road from Barletta, not the toll highway. This April, the road linking the main highway with Manfredonia was in repairs and in very, very bad state. To avoid!
