    I recommend going to visit this place, as well as the nearby watermill, catacombs, churches, ginnasium Greek, medieval settlement, cemetery, a little known treasure but don't miss it,

    Very nice to visit as well as the water mill ... Nicest people that will explain the functionality of the mill

    I highly recommend visiting the archaeological site of cava d'ispica, with its unique catacombs, the rock churches, the ginnasium Greek and medieval settlement excavated in the rock, in the area of the cemetery there is a prehistoric Burial caves because the area has always been popular. I highly recommend a visit. Only regret not having had time to visit the archaeological area of Strength, I thought they were related, and indeed they are, but with two separate entrances ...

  • 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.
  • History of Greece in Sicily. Choose a cooler day because there are no shadows
  • 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.
