Description

Dug in the sandstone with a labyrinth pattern, the Caves of Camerano stetch belowe the city centre for at least 3 kilometers. The people of Camerano have started digging the caves since the beginning of the history of the settlement and through the centuries they have been elarged and modified becoming an underground city. For a long time it was thought that they were the remains of ancient sandstone quarries or even wine cellars. However, explorations, interpretations, and the modern walkways, which have made these caves accessible today, have revealed the presence in almost all areas of architectural embellishments, carvings and decorative details that do not fit in quarries or simple storage rooms: domes, barrel vaults, circular rooms and decorative columns, decorated with friezes, ornaments and religious symbols are constants along the entire route.
The caves unravel in front of an often impressed visitor, showing an underground town almost like a charming fairytale, a secret Camerano were both history and legend are real. 
 

Path

The tour extends for a kilometer under the city centre of Camerano. It is possible to enter only with a guide and it is possible to take photos as long as the visitor stays with the group.

Large dogs are not allowed inside the caves. Small dogs must be carried in the arms or in a carrier for the entire duration of the guided tour. The route is not accessible to wheelchairs and strollers due to the presence of stairs along the route.

Advice

During the summer period we recommend visitors to bring a sweatshirt or jacket given the constant temperature of the caves of around 14 degrees and to wear shoes suitable for the route. Slippers and flip-flops are absolutely not recommended.
