Cave Nature / Park
Explore underground Italy with a visit to Grotte di Castellana, a cave system of inestimable importance for the world’s natural heritage. These limestone caves, discovered in 1938, are the country’s longest natural subterranean network of passages. The caves teem with a huge variety of native wildlife, and contain an extraordinary range of underground landscapes, with some of the world’s most astonishing stalactite and stalagmite formations. Inside these caverns, natural light streams in through the ceiling, filtering down into the darkness and creating curious visual effects, which change according to the time of day and the season. Don’t miss the so-called "White Cave," which is often described as the most shining cave in the world because of the whiteness of its alabaster walls. Guided tours are available daily, but be sure to check the official website for exact times before you make the trip.

  • Amazing, beautiful place. It's a must! Busy place but well organised. The visit last 2 hrs and we do not feel that it is a long time. It is very interesting.  more »

  • As the longest cave system in Italy it was a great adventure into the depths of the world. It was quite cool down there so remember a light sweater, and bring good walking shoes, the floor can get slippery. The your was well worth it, especially seeing the white cave. A truly amazing natural wonder.
  • One of the longest cave complexes some 50-70m underground. Pretty impressive and worth doing the long version of the tour, which takes around 2hrs. The guides are well prepared (we had tons of questions) and easy going. The entrance fee is a 16 eur per person - a bit too high imho.
  • It's the most amazing cave I've ever seen and maybe the most beautiful in the world. It's just mind-blowing.
  • Amazing caves. You can choose longer 2h or shorter 50min route.
  • This was amazing. Home of the white cave that is very beautiful.
