"A great location perfect for a day trip"

This gorgeous ancient archaeological site has plenty of rock-cut chamber tombs. The walk up to the tombs through the landscapes was really pretty and scenic. The guide took us on a walking tour of this location and was well worth it. Apart from the tombs, we spotted the ruins of prehistoric castle and chapels too. A fantastic location!

Necropolis of Pantalica

The Necropolis of Pantalica in southeast Sicily, Italy, is a collection of cemeteries with rock-cut chamber tombs dating from the 7th to the 13th centuries BC. There have been thought to be over 5000 tombs, although the most recent estimate suggests a figure of just under 4000. They extend around the flanks of a large promontory located at the junction of the Anapo river with its tributary, the Calcinara, about 23 kilometres northwest of Syracuse. Together with the city of Syracuse, Pantalica was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005.
