The website welcomed us a lady making us a brief summary about the history of the buildings surrounding the cave. 3 € entrance for stepping into Sicilia agricola from the turn of the century. Interesting was researching the similarities and differences between the Sicilian agricultural tradition and our rural culture. All machines are functional and can be seen in full activity during the holiday season, where this place houses the living Nativity citizen. A gem waiting to be discovered!show original

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.
