Cave of Terradico

The cave of Terradico passing Punta Meliso is the first that meets on the slope of Levante.

The Cave of Terradico called also cave of the Indians, is famous for its triangular shape, which recalls a tent. In reality it is not a single cave but a complex of 3 cavities, of various sizes, which develop successively between them.

Narrow and deep coves offer the visitor truly spectacular views.

Grotta di Terradico

Of the three caves the one that arouses the greatest emotions and the cave of terradico. It is a cave developed vertically with access from three small holes on the vault of the cavity and from an air outlet on the sea. Its height is about 35 meters and like most of the caves of leuca is characterized by beautiful plays of light that bounce on the unreal surface rich in mineral formations and calcium salts and from here you create shades of color from pink to green.

Its about thirty karst caves are made even more interesting by the names that man has given them over the centuries.
