Description

Coordinates: 38° 44′ 32″ N, 16° 10′ 28″ E

Pizzo is a seaport in the province of Vibo Valentia, situated on a steep cliff overlooking the Gulf of Santa Eufemia. Fishing is one of the main activities, including that of tunny and coral. Pizzo is famous for its Tartufo, a large ball of ice cream filled with molten chocolate, and the Chiesa di Piedigrotta, an underground church carved directly into the tuff rock.

A legend says that fishermen were caught in a storm and having a picture of the Holy Mary, they prayed Our Lady to save them. Miraculously, the ship ended on the seashore. They made a cave on the spot to symbolize a church. Various artists (like Angelo and Alfonso Barone) sculpted marvellous statues in the cave.
