Photographer's Note

Caves of San Fortunato - Montefalco (PG)

The so-called Caves of San Fortunato are preserved in the wood of the convent of San Fortunato,
They are compartments dug out of a bank of breccia and clay.
Their origin is probably very ancient and certainly mysterious. Unfortunately, the documentation is late and scarce.
It was probably originally a pagan mithraeum, later used as an oratory in the early Christian era.
