Rock Church of San Nicola in Cava d'Ispica


 Crocevia Cava Ispica - Modica (RG)

The Rock Church of San Nicola is grafted into a very popular context in the early Middle Ages which is the area of ​​the Cava d'Ispica.
The hypogeum has a rectangular plan and has an apse. On the walls there are traces of paintings from the Byzantine age in which the face of the Madonna is recognizable in the attitude of turning a cheek to the child, but without a face, a panel with the representation of St. Nicholas and a scene depicting the annunciation. On the floor there is a small pit perhaps used as a baptismal font.
To date the church has been completely abandoned.
