Description

 C. from Cuntarati

Presence of numerous dolmenic structures, of volcanic cones used for ritual purposes, of a rock ravine also of a ritual nature and of a lava flow cave used for burial purposes, all referable to the ancient Bronze Age (2200 - 1450 a . C.) which so far represent the only evidence of megalithism in the Etna area and in north-eastern Sicily
