Very high price to see nothing. Only a humid cave full of objects and images of dubious origin, without much information, stupid staff and with difficult access. Prepare to pay mercenaries while parking. This cave should be at least free compared to real museums.

Really worth a short detour, if you're in the Pizzo - Tropea area! Quite an amount of steps leads there from the road, which could be a challenge, especially on the way up!

If you find yourself in Pizzo, this is a must see. The church has an interesting history and the carvings are amazing. The beach views in Pizzo are beautiful too.
