This is about 7kms up from the town and certainly worth the effort of getting there. The church is interesting but not spectacular, though pity the badly designed annex was allowed. On the main altar is a beautiful marble monument of Saint Calogero, carved by Antonio and Giacomo Gagini. The cave, 'home' to the hermit monk Calogero, is to the right of the church. Round the far side, there is also the natural steam grotto 'Stufe di San Calogero' - stays at around 40°c and 95% humidity - which in December and very quiet we were able to see, though suspect that much of the year not quite so easy. Nice walk along the top with fantastic views, and picnic benches in the wooded area. Plenty of parking.
