Caves S. Cataldo 1st and 2nd
Purely indicative georeferencing. To review!!
The name comes from a small church in a small hill north east of the Nocella River. The caves open into an old shore line upstream of the SS. 113 km 302,3. The surface is very degraded, however in the 60s several lithic tools of the upper Paleolithic were collected.
