Church of Sant’Agostino – The entrance to hell

0
Inside the Church of St Augustine there is a mysterious metal trapdoor, located next to a painting of the Madonna with a hole on her right shoulder. According to one legend, a man gambled away a large sum of money invoking the help of the Madonna. But the man lost everything and ran into the church, furious at the Virgin Mary, hurling a stone at her. The man lost everything and ran into the church, furious at the Virgin Mary, hurling a stone at her, and a hole suddenly opened up in front of him, plunging him into hell. The chasm was finally closed in the 18th century with a trap door and never opened again, precisely because no one has the courage to open what is widely regarded as the 'entrance to hell'.
