Crypt of the Original Sin
The Crypt of the Original Sin, also called the “Crypt of the hundred saints” because of the numerous frescoes or even the “Church of the flower painter” because beautiful red flowers, the cysts, are drawn at the foot of the frescoes. It was the cultural site of a Benedictine rock monastery of the Lombard period. It was discovered by chance by some shepherds and today it represents one of the most precious jewels of southern rock art. The inestimable value is given by the pictorial cycle of the walls where the representation of evil in the form of a fig stands out in the pictorial works: out of 5 churches in Italy this is the oldest.
This rock church together with the Musmae at the Casa di Ortega are managed by the Synchronos Cooperative.
