Cave of the Pietrazzi
“The cavity is located upstream of the Molara Grotto and according to the project I presented to the Superintendency of Monuments, it should be part of the Molara Speleoarchaeological Park with the Grotta degli Spiriti (Pa. N. 181). I point out among the stones at the base of the well fossil bones of Elephas falconeri and Iena crocuta (Geological Museum "GG Gemmellaro")."
