Among the hundred caves of Etna’s lava flows, the “Grotta Lunga” (Long Cave) is characterized by a six-pointed arch and extends for about 55m. The lava tube was probably formed during the eruption of the volcanic apparatus of Monpeloso formed in 252-253 d.C.
The cave entrance is located a few meters upstream of the entrance to the road from which a small footpath rises up in a slight hill. There are several typical speleothems of the lava flow caves and if you are lucky you can also find bats resting in the darkness of the natural cavity.
