  • If you go to Scicli you can not miss the visit to the Cave of Mr. Carmel that will guide you on a fantastic journey into the past. He Describes with care and details everything you will see in the cave and is a skilled craftsman. Recommend the visit. Thank you Mr. Carmelo for your kindness and to keep a part of our history and our origins alive.

  • Carmelo is super passionate about showing the traditions and culture of a people. It seems incredible to think that his relatives lived there until a few decades ago. His cave is reached after a short uphill walk (eye to slippery stones) in the ququartire of Chiafura. Chiafura is the district of Scicli with houses built in the caves. It is a beautiful experience to see Carmelo also explain to the children how to make bread or where the children slept. In the cave there is also his handcrafted crib. In addition to the cave Carmelo is a skilled craftsman and sells items made by him or his son, for example we bought a slingshot for my son. Show you how to play with the top: if it's in the mood it will show you the 3 ways to throw the top. Like many in Scicli he is a passionate grower of aromatic plants and caper plants
