Catacomb of the Larderia.
È one of the largest catacombs of South-Eastern Sicily, with that of San Marco di Ispica and the cave of the Trabacche in the Ragusa area.
The entrance, called "vestibule”, Which has the shape of a rectangle measuring 7,40 by 5,50 meters, is damaged due to collapses, the existence of an ancient sheep track and the construction of a bridge in 1885.
In its north-west wall there are 4 stacks of niches with 4 burials each and in the floor, 26 carpet pits.
It gives access to three corridors. The central decumanus, oriented from east to west, it is 35,60 meters long, 3 at the beginning and 1,5 at the end, and 2,50 meters high.
All the decking is occupied by 55 was terragne arranged in 4 parallel rows.
It is divided into three parts: the first has only pile niches, nine and seven in number on both sides; the middle part has 4 arcosoli polysomes to the right and 3 to the left, with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 7 pits each, the latter of which are higher. The final part includes the most important arcosoli, 7 on the right and 10 on the left; three polysomes and the others, monumental, with a single pit.
The ceiling is flat and the connection in the front and sides is formed with round arches.
On the left side in the center of the decumanus opens the so-called "Canopy cubicle", with arcosoli polysomes in the walls, the most monumental of which has 11 pits.
In the Northeast corner there is a single sepulcher a tegurium or canopy and in the center a bisome with 4 corner pillars.
Il southern corridor it is posterior to the decumanus and has a length of 22m and a width that narrows from approximately 3m to 1,5m; the floor is filled with three-tiered pits.
In the front there are multiple stacked niches, while in the right wall of the final part there are two arcosoles polysomes with 5 and 9 sepulchres, one of which has a canopy.
The third corridor it is the shortest (about 10 meters) but the most intensely used. It is accessed from a second vestibule, which has 5 stacks of multiple niches. The gallery is wider than the other two, has 20 tombs in the north and 12 in the south.
In one of the pillars of the corridor on the right there is an engraved, in an unclear way, a cross.
