The Hermit's Cave - Farindola (PE)

The Grotta dell'Eremita - Hermit's Cave - is located in the municipality of Farindola on a steep slope above Valle d'Angri, under the Valichetto dei Paponi from where the path to reach it starts.

It is located at an altitude of about 1300 metres above sea level, made up of limestone rocks from which small stalactites and a few whitish stalagmites protrude. A very suggestive place, despite its depth of about 20 meters.

Bats live permanently in the cave, where you can also find various types of spiders and insects and occasionally reptiles and amphibians, too.
