Group activity | minimum 10 people


Cava d’Ispica is a fluviale valley that carves the Iblean plateau for 13 km, between Modica and Ispica. The valley, immersed in mediterranean vegetation, hosts a prehistoric necropolis, christian catacombs, holy caves, monastic hermitages and other types of dwellings. At the end of the valley of Ispica, just before the city, there are several traces of civilization going all the way back to prehistory. The hike is about 4 km and it revolves around the Cava with drops which don’t exceed 50 meters. Here is a paradise of mediterranean vegetation, cave archaeology and unique flavors.
