We visited the Caratabia Caves just by Mineo, approximately 40 minutes from Catania by car. This place is also called Castello delle Pietre = Stone Castle. These two caves are from the hellenistic and greek era where you can find original inscriptions on the cave walls dated about 500 B.C. There are two caves, one for living and animals, and in the second cave they made wine and ricotta, you can see the hole in the ground on the 6th photo where they produced these foods. If you want to visit these, you need you need to contact a guide by the municipality to open up the entrance.
