  • We covered part of the trail by cava d'ispica, wanting to do some trekking in the nature. Unfortunately the trail is held badly, you have to guess the path and again, losing the trail, you are forced to go along the riverbed. Often encountered meshes and gates that you don't know whether you can overcome. However if you do not want to go back we are forced to open these gates which are perhaps places just for cattle but sometimes exhibit signs of prohibitions or private property. The guide was recommended a castle, but we haven't seen, partly because the trail has forked but in total lack of signage.

  • A great place to visit. We went for the caves but found the water mill too. The family that owned the mill for generations give you a guided tour. Well worth the two euros entrance price.  more »
  • If you are in the area, this is a "must see", I have travelled much and never come across anything like this. It's great to see how people have lived and been buried completely from antiquity to the middle ages. We found especially the catacombs and the Roman gymnasium exciting. The reason why this place is not in top stars is solely their opening times, as when we visited was 9-1.15 pm which were not reflected in their website and did that we were forced to run out there two days ago.

  • History of Greece in Sicily. Choose a cooler day because there are no shadows
  • Interesting to see some of the caves and to ponder what it was like to carve out those rooms and live in them. The descriptions on the signs were somewhat informative, the trails were in poorly maintained condition getting overrun by weeds and the area you are able to visit is pretty small compared to the length of the valley. If it were along the way i'd probably stop but certainly wouldn't go out of my way to visit.
  • The mill museum was better than the caverns
  • A nice archeological site that is to be seen on an easy walk around. Information can be gathered at entrance station by self guide phones. That site also is an medival tomb yard as well as in use to live for people until the 1930s. Do not forget to visit the near by Mulino ad Aqua. Very interessting site too.
