The Hermitage of San Cataldo. Located on the outskirts of the village, the characteristic Hermitage of San Cataldo, an immense hollow in granite rock that covers it like a roof, over a thousand years protects the small community of Cottanello. Its origins, prior to the tenth century, are due to the Benedictine monks who, preaching in the area, used it as a refuge or place of hermitage. The hermitage dedicated to St. Cataldo, Bishop of Rochau, who lived between the sixth and seventh century AD, during a pilgrimage to the Holy Land died in Taranto, where he was buried in the cathedral.
