Description of Monte Sant'Angelo Shrine

The town of Monte Sant'Angelo is located in the hills on the Gargono promontory, on the east coast of south-central Italy (the spur of the boot). The exterior of the shrine is fairly unassuming, marked only by an octagonal 13th-century campanile and a white facade with two portals. But from the small courtyard, a flight of stone steps leads down into an atmospheric church incorporating the cave in which St. Michael appeared. The main church and the areas that lead to it are decorated with remains of medieval frescoes and sculptures.
