Monte Gallo - Grotta della Caramula

Cave of the Aeolithic. 

"The cave consists of a long diverticulum that wedges and gradually descends below the floor of about 6 m while the height of the cavity (20 m) is surprising, which is affected by numerous stalactites and stalagmites ... Inside ceramic and stone industry fragments and some quartzite fragments were collected "(text: Giovanni Mannino: The Caves of Monte Gallo: in the Archaeological Newsletter Superintendence of Palermo 15/2016)
