    Where the Fiume Anapo has dug a deep ravine in the Monte Ibli, lies Pantalica, one of the great necropolis of Sicily. More than 5000 graves were carved in the soft rock more than 3000 years ago. Its builders were the Sicans, who at that time were pushed back by mainland settlers. In early Christian times, the cave graves must have been inhabited. Below the rocks, a trail leads through the evergreen nature. It leads to a Byzantine rock church and the Anaktoron. However, you need good shoes, food and water. (round trip: 3 hours, 8.8 kilometers, up and down: 270 meters)
