Grotta Za Minica

This is another Sicilian cave that was inhabited by Pleistocene animals (elephants, cattle, deer, hippos…) and then by man, where instead of animal bones they left flint tools. But even in this cave, the main attraction is the graffiti near the entrance where two carvings can be observed: a cow and a deer. Near the cave in the Riparo della Nipote are line incisions, the graffiti of a deer, an anthropomorphic figure made of charcoal and also the graphic representation of an ancient animal enclosure.
