  • Well worth exploring and an easy walk. The natural caves were used for burials and religious ceremonies.  more »
  • This place is awesome - cave dwellings and ancient tombs We went by car - Follow sign posts on the road from Modica to NOTO - can easily miss it ! Top tips: Allow 1.5 hours for visit Free car park.....  more »
  • Off the beaten path, but well worth the visit. These historic caves have had people living in/nearby since neolithic times, and the area is utterly fascinating. Read up on it before you go (the literature on site isn't the greatest). Also, be prepared for stuff to be in a somewhat rough condition. Then again, that's part of the charm...
  • If the place is going to be open, do it right. The whole area is severely overgrown with weeds and trees, the large majority of the site is closed from public access and what isnt closed should be. I was nearly hit by a large boulder dislodged by site workers from the top. I'm not sure what sort of "archaeological area" purposely breaks free large boulders and lets them drop onto the valley below while it crashes into everything on its way down...including the openings of various caves. Highly disappointed. Literally drove 180km out of my way to see the site. Paid admission. Saw pretty much nothing.
