  • The story of the cave is very interesting and is today a well preserved site where every Christmas is a Nativity scene. We stayed here in September, with the good fortune to find few tourists, the cave is a fascinating place for children.

  • What makes an impression is the unique feature of the place. First, the idea of building a village inside a cave and then widened near the same. Extreme simplicity and today you would think extreme poverty. But we must immerse themselves in those days; then the vision changes radically. In this large family Freeloader who lived here until the forties of the last century, nothing was missing starting with the heat of the Earth, from the panorama (though perhaps not had too much time to admire). All tasks of survival for those times were present and not coincidentally the site represents a natural film set for several films (one of which is coming soon). Strikingly beautiful, distinctive and unique. Easily accessible by car as well marked in the area of Custonaci. I could see some pictures of the "Nativity" which here is represented every year during Christmas and early January: who will be lucky enough to be in those places at the time, should not miss the opportunity.

  • Mangiapane caves nearby Custonaci. This cave has been used from a local family for many years, where they settles and built their houses and stables. They were farming in the opposite field and fishing into the sea no more than 500 mt far away. It's a nice place to visit, not more than 10-15 minutes as there is nobody to ask information. However, the place is so suggestive, especially if you look from the entrance, where you can see this big cave literally eating the houses. The more you walk in, the more it looks like everything remained stick to 50 years ago. I guess this is the result of a conservation program ran by the local authority, but again at the time of my visit nobody was there to either ask something or to leave a tip as requested. Nowadays the place is used for a living nativity representation.
  • What about a nice surprise this place! Worth visiting if you're nearby! To make the Christmas crib is sure that is really wonderful!
