The excursion dedicated to Carosello Cave and Noto Antica

Located just a few tens of kilometers away from today’s Noto, lies a place rich in history, unfortunately with a tragic past. In 1693, the most devastating earthquake to hit eastern Sicily occurred here, reducing dozens of towns to rubble, including Noto Antica. During our tour, we will visit the town, or what remains of the ancient village, and discover its centuries-old history. We will then venture into one of the most beautiful quarries in the Iblei region – cava Carosello, where we will witness how man has exploited nature for his own benefit through the construction of tanneries and mills. Our journey will conclude at one of the most stunning natural pools in the Iblei, where we can cool off with a refreshing swim before returning to the car.

Our excursion begins with a meet-up at 9:00 a.m. at the predetermined meeting point agreed upon during the booking process. After introductions, a briefing on the route and an overview of the main points of interest will be provided. We will also conduct a clothing and equipment check and register for the association, which provides insurance coverage.
