impressive church, interesting museum especially thee nativity tableaux, great views, scary road. It's a place of pilgrimage and devotion rather than a tourist attraction. You need a good vehicle to get any further up the mountain and into the national park.

The church is a beautiful, solemn and very spiritual place to be in. The architecture is magnificent! Outside the church you can stroll in the little piazza which overlooks the city of Avellino. You will be treated to a wonderful vista!
