Castellana Caves

Piazza Franco Anelli, 70013 Castellana Grotte BA, Italy

For centuries the superstitious locals believed that the souls of suicides, found dead in the Grave, tried in vain to rise to the heavens in the form of vapors. In fact there’s nothing mystical about the true origin of the caves. Every now and then cattle and careless travelers fell down into the caves in which water running underground gradually dissolved the limestone. The cave system is currently about 3000 meters in length and about 72 meters in depth. The true highlight of the Castellana Caves is the White Cave, considered by speleologists the most spectacular cave of Castellana. Every corner of the cave is adorned with white and translucent stalactites and stalagmites thus forming a hall of majestic beauty.
