Caratabia in Mineo

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.

Ancient Caves

When you hike in the sicilian landscape you find many ancient caves. Some are still used as stables and some just are there empty with traces from old sicilian civilisation when people still lived in caves.

Jojo goes rustic

This structure is from times B.C when people still lived in caves, then is passed to arabs, then to normans, then to baroque area and now it is just falling apart and been visited by thiefs. Up on the hill you have this structure now dated late 1800 and below you still find the caves. We have signed an agreement with the owner to develop the structure to a nice private hotel. This place is amazing an have so much history. You feel the place is dynamic when you visit it, it fills you with energy and makes you stand still for a while.

“Eat Bread” Cave – Grotta MangiaPane in Custonaci

Mangia Pane cave lays just by a small seaside town on the Sicilys west coast called Custonaci. Here you find traces from the earliest population in Sicily, called Siculi. They lived in caves. The same area is filled with traces from other populations until this day when local people every year hold several feasts by the cave. The cave is still a small rural farm with animals and food produce.

Svenska

Mangia Pane grottan ligger vid en liten kuststad p? Siciliens v?stkust som kallas Custonaci. H?r hittar du sp?r fr?n den tidigaste befolkningen p? Sicilien, som kallas Siculi. De bodde i grottor. Samma omr?de ?r fylld med sp?r fr?n andra populationer tills denna dag d? lokalbefolkningen varje ?r h?ller fleratal fester vid grottan. Grottan ?r fortfarande en liten lantlig g?rd med djur och livsmedelsproduktion.
