    Go stairs with many ups and downs, not particularly challenging but unsuitable for people with mobility problems. A proper attire is a must (closed shoes and with a decent sole), also keep the helmet on (they are less than a metre tall and I hit the ceiling several times). On the other hand is not a SideShow: the caves are authentic and well structured explanation. Recommended, but with juicio.

  • The path to visit the caves of Equi starts from the Pocket, already known in the ' 700: we climb up to an opening to terrace, overlooking the cracked wall of mountain, where various species of birds, including the Golden Eagle; There goes through a maze of halls, galleries, tunnels with fossilizations. The hole leads to a cavity is still alive, the caves, adorned with stalactites, stalagmites and all forms of natural concretion. There is also a "Speleological part", is not currently open to the public, but rich in karst elements. Inside the cave were found only the remains of animals but not human traces, probably removed from the waters of underground springs. She is currently in the process of completing the internal walkway that connects the caves to Tecchia. The path outside, steep and overhanging the Creek let him, he's dangerous and therefore we do not recommend the haul. The Tecchia of Equi is an ancient shelter for humans and animals: artefacts and animal remains are telling the story of this cave from 40,000 years ago until the middle ages. Archaeological research of the early ' 900 have unearthed stone and bone objects that belonged to the Neanderthal hunters and skeletons of Wolf, Fox, Groundhog, but also unusual fauna, today, to such places as the ursus speleus (cave bear), the lion and the Leopard. Evidence of funeral rites and burials of the copper age tell us instead of later use the cave as a place of burial. $p 01 Opening $ p01 from July to September: Saturday and Sunday 10.30-19.00; Monday to Friday 10.30-12.30 and 14.30-19.00.
