Come and visit the Cantinone Caves!
Osimo hides a labyrinth of underground tunnels that have been excavated over the centuries for various purposes.
The Grotte del Cantinone wind for a stretch of about 300 meters beneath the Basilica-Sanctuary of Saint Joseph of Cupertino.
Along the path, you will notice religious bas-reliefs since these caves were extensively used in the medieval period by the Franciscan friars of the Basilica above as a place of worship and prayer, as well as storage and warehouses.
Guided tours last approximately 50 minutes.
It is recommended to wear a sweatshirt as the temperature in the cave is around 13-14°C.
Advance booking is recommended!
