“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.
