Cave di Cusa Reviews
Occorre fare una deviazione di alcuni chilometri dai percorsi turistici per raggiungere questo sito, utilizzato dai Selinuntini per trarne il materiale tufaceo necessario per costruire la loro città. ... more »You must make a detour of several kilometers from the tourist trails to reach this site, used by the Selinuntines to draw Tuff material needed to build their city. You can still see the vegetation cuts charged into the rock to extract the blocks, half a column and a capital. However, there is no path specification or any explanatory sign, but one entrance. Also you must travel to reach the site, on the last leg, a paved road about one kilometre, very rough road much to put a strain on cars and motorcycles. Sin in any other country that would be a major attraction!

What new disappointment. We have seen these blocks, guess work and the technique used, but that's all... More information, visit path does not exist, even more ticketing! The case of Royal Road (massive Cobbles, ideal to test your shock absorbers), assumed to have been built for the site, the Museum attached, everything is abandoned. How sad.
Abbiamo visitato le cave di cusa un po di corsa perchè la giornata era molto calda...comunque molto emozionante, vedere il lavoro che svolgevano per tagliare queste enormi colonne, con materiali rudim... more »We visited the cave di cusa some race because the weather was very hot ... still very exciting to see the work that they performed to cut these huge columns with rudimentary materials.
Too bad this site definitely interesting verses in a State of disrepair. You pay the ticket and then you walk in the streets amid the undergrowth and without any indication! We did not find the quarry after walking about 2 hours. Crazy because at the entrance there is a sign showing how it would be interesting to see the monoliths extracts or extraction.
Lacking the necessary directions, lawn care, dried weeds galore, continuous fire, missing the toilet ...! A shameful situazione...in a place that should be teeming with tourists!
Enchanting place where you can breathe the air of history
Amazing and impressive this stone quarry where were cut the columns of the temples
Interesting historical quarry, where the pillars were cut stones of the Greek temple from the rock. -by hand! After this visit, you can see the Temple of the environment with other eyes.
