  • More than parlelei of cave archaeological site. BOS primigenius, burials and whatnot. Pleasant place surrounded by nature, good driving, honest fee. Small caves and the top from about 50mt standpoint of formations and colors. On the other side, behind Papasidero sullo Ionio in Cassano, I visited Caves very much nicer and long, historical and archaeological too. Recommended. To visit.

  • You never know the beauties of Italy. Do you ever go to a remote village in Calabria and in 10 km before you come across a cave of Romito. Saturday afternoon and do not know what to do and with a group of friends decide to go and visit a lady welcomes us to discover and be our guide. We go down a path and discover an Italian beauty the story and the cave that contains it. There are only 6 with a guide just X us, who loves his work and explains everything absolutely everything of this find. What a pity to find that the findings have not remained in the territory but migrated to Florence, even though he had from Unesco recognition. One thing that did not allow to take away was a stone representing a bovid engraved ... who say go there because although small the cave is a treasure trove of history. Suitable for children

  • Uno dei luoghi più antichi abitanti dai ns. progenitori paleolitici. Graffito notevolissimo.
  • 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.
  • 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 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.

  • Fascinating, considering his past dating to around 19000 years ago. I thought it was bigger but the stalactites and stalagmites make it quite impressive.

  • Truly useful, not just on the curriculum for the preparation and the kindness of the staff, but to the place "almost magical" in which it is embedded.
