Overview

In 2005 a group of speleologues leaded by Mr Michele Parisi, discovers and makes know to people tunnels, cisterns,aqueducts, cells, rocky churches, barns, old furnaces hidden in meanders placed under the city centre. In this suggestive world they discovered great towers and ruins of old city walls. It is very interesting to admire the historical cells of the Ducal Palace (the house in which pope Benedict XIII was born), the cell placed under the seat of Gravina Souterrain, the cells of Amato Palace.

This was a really interesting tour, it has been amazing to see how the people were building their city through graving into it from beneath. The guide was lively, intelligent and knowledgeable, and we all enjoyed it a lot! We took the middle size tour...More

Gravina in Puglia actually has little to offer, other than the spectacular Palazzo Sottile Meninni. A great small church right by this hotel (the one with the skulls and crossbones). Pay the 3 euros and go in with a guide. The Sotterranea tour really just...More

A good way to see an aspect (underground) of an old Puglia city. It was not expensive and it was interesting. The guide did speak adequate English.

A once in a lifetime experience. The whole town of Gravina sits on a Warren of limestone caves that were extended by excavations to use their blocks as building materials. You get to walk down in a huge such cavern. Fascinating.

Excellent tour of caves and underground cisterns in Gravina. The caves are amazing and there was such a sense of adventure! It was very interesting to understand how people extracted their building material and lived in previous centuries. The guides were knowledgeable and explained historical,...More
