Cave of Wind - Grotta del Vento

It is close by the town and promoted in all the literature to go there. It is a cave, like many others. Open mostly during the peak tour season. It is called Cave of the Winds because of two entrances that allow the wind to come through and make howling wind noise. The caves ere formed after millions of years of siltation in the Tyreann SEa, and then 20 million years ago the ground rose up and the openings resulted from water erosion.
The entrance is about 1900 feet above sea level height. The cave was discovered in the 17th century, but exploration did not occur until late 1800’s. There is around 2 miles of caves that can be walked. The cost is 5 Euro one hour and 10 Euro for two hours.
