Maratea - Basilica di San Biagio

Before reaching the Redentore statue, you'll pass the Basilica of San Biagio on the mountain's summit ridge. The church is dedicated to Maratea's patron saint (San Biago, or St. Blaise) and was financed by Philip II of Spain in the 17th Century.

The church, the Statua del Redentore, and the adjacent ruins of Maratea Superiore form a complex of monuments known as the Sanctuary of San Biagio.
