Evocative limestone canyons ('cave' in local dialect) hide endless clearwater streams, lush river vegetation and vertical rockfaces dotted with some 5000 tombs carved into the rock that can be found amid the varied Mediterranean craggy bush vegetation: thus describing in a few words the largest European necropolis, recently listed as a UNESCO site.A beautiful trail carved into the rock will take you to visit the ancient pre-Hellenic and Byzantine settlements, the Pipistrelli (bats) cave and the old disused railway line, next to wonderful mirror like pools adorned by lush vegetation.Duration: 4 hoursPass By: Necropoli di Pantalica, Pantalica, Province of Syracuse, Sicily.
