Noto Antica – Cava Carosello




Tour Overview

In this tour we will visit the ancient town of Noto destroyed by the earthquake of 11 January 1693. The city, located on Monte Alveria, is immersed in a unique and suggestive natural environment. We will follow the oldest paths and cross the sixteenth-century walls that survived the earthquake.

From the city we will then move to the spectacular Carosello quarry, stopping shortly at the Asinaro river. Continuing along the path we will explore the ancient tanneries carved into the rock, symbol of the economic prosperity of the past.
