Caves of Lintana


This complex occupies a rocky crevice at least 80 meters high and consists of a "ddieri" with an enormous number of beehive cells, arranged individually and connected by ladders carved into the rock. On the lower floor the cells are extremely narrow and arranged around a slightly larger room, recognizable as an oratory thanks to the presence of a pictorial panel.

Rock settlement of late Byzantine (V-VI century AD) and medieval (XII century AD)
