Necropolis of Pantàlica
Pantàlica is a nature reserve in the south-east of Sicily, set 450 m above sea level between two deep canyons carved by two rivers. It is declared (along with Syracuse) UNESCO World Heritage Site and boasts around 5000 prehistoric tombs and cave churches which are around 70.000 years old, and formed out of limestone cliffs dotting the walls of the Anapo valley.
Pantàlica can be explored only by foot, so venture out following the various natural paths, which are very well kept and allow you to marvel at this extraordinary deep gorge with rock- cut tombs.
Pantalica is definitely the perfect place for those who love nature and archaeological sites. You can spend a couple of hours there or even a whole day - the nature reserve Cavagrande del Cassibile is located next to Pantàlica. The air is so fresh, the water refreshing and there is an abundance of wildlife and vegetation.
