Myth of the Lilybetana Sibyl
The myth is linked to the cult of Apollo and the prophetess of Apollo who was based in the so-called Sibyl's cave. Above the cave, in the same place where a temple dedicated to Apollo probably existed, the church of S. Giovanni Battista was erected in the sixteenth century, whose statue, located inside the cave, would rest on an ancient altar of Apollo.
