Pantalica: Necropolis of Cavetta
Archaeological site falling within the archaeological area of Pantalica
Continuing on the asphalted road, leaving the path on the right to reach the Anaktoron, about 1,9 km from the saddle of Filipporto you will reach a bridge over a small valley (the Cavetta), from the sides pierced by caves of houses of the Byzantine age. Before the bridge, a path to the right, heading east along the right side of the valley, reaches, in approx. 350 m, the Cavetta viewpoint; from here you have a beautiful view, below, towards the confluence of the Cavetta with the Anapo where the very high rocky walls, almost vertical, are pierced by very dense groups of tombs, which form the necropolis of Cavetta, from the XNUMXth-XNUMXth century BC with about 350 tombs.
