Pantalica Park

Pantalica Park: the Cecropolis and the Valley

One of the most impressive archaeological sites in Sicily and an Unesco world heritage is the rocky necropolis of Pantalica, in eastern Sicily, in the province of Syracuse. This site is somewhat off the beaten track but surely worth a visit. Pantalica is a prehistoric site of the late bronze age (from the 13th to the 8th century BC) and is famous for its necropolis: thousand of tombs dug in overhanging walls of the Anapo canyon. But Pantalica is also famous for its breathtaking nature and is part of the Anapo valley nature reserve, a paradise for trekking.
