The caves of Pastena

The Caves of Pastena, discovered in 1926 by Baron Carlo Franchetti and made tourist since 1927, are counted among the major speleological complexes of our peninsula. The area in which they are located is one of the most picturesque in Ciociaria, where the inclemency of geological events led to the formation of a typical landscape, comparable to the Friulian Karst, bizarre forms of erosion and plains linked to ancient karst lakes.
