The emotions of the underground world. NEW PROGRAM

Located 40 km away from Bari, Castellana Caves are considered  to be the most important complex of caves in Italy and Europe: full of of crystalline concretions,of a considerable expansion and a spectacular vastness of its natural galleries, the caves of Puglia have been entrusted with this record.

On January 23 1930, Franco Anelli discovered the Grotte di Castellana. This is a spectacular network of caves carved out by an underground stream and stretching several kilometres underground.

There are two different tours to see the soaring stalactites and stalagmites. The longer of the two, which lasts around two hours, takes visitors into the depths of the White Cave, which is lined with glittering alabaster rock formations. The caves are open daily from 8.30 am in the summer with the last admission at 7pm.
