Riparo di Sperlinga

A cave inhabited since prehistoric times in a position that, even today, is almost primitive; in the forest, hidden, and almost inaccessible!

A very curious place, extremely isolated and far from the sea.

The cave, in this splendid landscape, has yielded findings of many objects dating to about 10,000 years ago.
