Another interesting discovery is at Poggio dei Santi, in the district of Alia. It is accessible from the road connecting Vizzini-Buccheri. The hill is 630 m high and dominates the valley of the river Amerillo.
Here on the south side is a spectacular complex of caves with rooms carved into rock, a few used as tombs (the so called beautiful canopy). Inside are still visible traces of painted panels with dark backgrounds. A little path, built on the hillside and reinforced with dry walls, is the only access to the site with diverse terraces and grottoes, in fact.
The entire are of Licodia Eubea is made interesting by a number of necropoli from various time periods: Vigna della Signora (Sicelioti, 6th century BC, photo), with multiple burials, these had a minimum of three to a maximum of seven subjects from the same family. Of particular note is the presence of the remains of a horse buried with his master, a rare occurrence.
Necropoli di Fossa Quadara Located on a high plateau overlooking, on it’s north side, the artificial lake of Licodia Eubea, it is about 5 kilometers from the town. This necropolis has yielded beautiful artifacts that are now in many Sicilian museums.
