St. Michael Archangel
There is a legend that in 1200 the cave was chosen as hideaway by one Angelo after he had committed a murder; he converted himself, he lived there as a hermit, frequently visited by numerous pilgrims.
Until the second world war two important feasts were celebrated here on May 8 and on September 29: in the cave the pilgrims picked up a pebble that they preserved till the feast of the following year. During the second world war, for its strategic position, it was used as a shelter and as military base, which caused its decadence and abandonment.
The tradition says that San Tussio, who gave later his name to a nearby village, passed here part of his life as a hermit and that he hosted also San Pellegrino, the saint to whom the marvelous church of Bominaco is dedicated. The folk legend identifies in some hollows in the cave the footprints of Saint Michael and of the devil.
