Owner description: Medieval abbey in a cave that preserves beautiful structures and frescoes made between the late 10th and 17th centuries. All immersed in an extraordinary natural setting.

The Sunflower guide gives directions for walking from Maiori to Santa Maria de Olearia which makes a wonderful excursion (though you could drive). The walk takes you high above the coast and then you descend to this little chapel which is on 3 levels, each of which gets progressively more richly frescoed and delightful as you ascend. The opening times are rather limited so you should check at the tourist office for times.
