We can offer you a visitor to these beautiful stalactite caves during your visit Vacation in Puglia I can only recommend it, because they are one of the most important attractions in Puglia. The Castellana caves are only a few kilometers away from the famous towns of Alberobello and Cisternino.
On a hike through the caves you can marvel at this wonder that nature created over millions of years. More than 15 million visitors have already visited these beautiful grottos. Even today a lot is growing due to the constant temperature of around 16 degrees in the caves.
It was not until 1938 that the caves were discovered by two Italian explorers who discovered one cave after the other. At the very end of the corridor you came to a cave that is now one of the most beautiful in Europe – La Grotta Bianca / the white grotto.
