  • We visited the cave in autumn 2015. The cave itself is quite small and there is not that much to see inside- apart the famous rock engraving of an ox at the cave´s entrance, but it is set in a beautif...  more »
  • Being on holiday in the area with my family, we have recently visited the cave and the small museum in front of waiting that rallied the group that preceded us and I have to say that the landscape context that hosts it is nothing short of spectacular and we also took the opportunity to please our son of 9 years that he enjoyed everything expanding his knowledge based study which is currently earning. Order, cleanliness, hospitality and kindness of the staff that manages to spend a layover informative and rewarding.

  • We're in the visit to the cave of Romito and greeted flawlessly by the staff. The visit lasts max half an hour, being the cave not deep, but still well preserved and still in fas edi studied by archaeologists. The park surrounding it is well taken care of and allows you to spend pleasantly relaxing hours.

  • Interesting, not too "touristy" - got a private tour by some enthusiastic lady, fascinating too see the excavations ongoing - and cool to see some sleeping bats in the caves. Nice place to visit for sure.
  • Amazing place for children and adults. Inside the cave you can admire a rock engraving dating to 17,000 years ago. The guide who drove us has managed to capture the attention of children. €4 to head well spent.

  • A beautiful place, nature and cultural value. The entry you pay 5 euros, but it deserves. Interesting and very well made the teaching room so there's enough to read, but you don't get to "too much" and anyway the summary is excellent. The kind lady who acts as a guide is helpful and courteous, but above all it is passionate about the subject and well prepared. The engraving of the aurochs (Bos primigenius) which made famous the cave was impressed beyond expectations. In particular for the dynamism of the stroke, which is drawing level with detail but that is not a scratch on the surface, but a nice deep (see picture). Very interesting are also the two double burials of about 10,000 years ago, each with two individuals buried together, embraced. What you see on the site is the cast resin (see photo). The two are embraced in affectionate attitude. It is certain that they died at the same time, there is a suspicion that one of them didn't want to survive to the next, or that it was a suicide/murder ritual. Does it reflect the fact that they had around 25 years (for the times were in full maturity: over the 30-35 years came in a few), but suffered from almost every possible bone diseases: deforming arthrosis, osteoporosis, rickets and other strong. The civilization some benefit brought him!! Fascinating natural environment around the cave, in addition to the cave itself, small but rich in stalagmites and stalactites.
