The Lamalunga Cave, in the territory of Altamura, is characterized by a system of karst caves and narrow tunnels. It is accessed through a sinkhole about ten meters deep, after which it will come across an extraordinary archaeological find known as "Altamura Man" fossil skeleton of Pleistocene, due to an adult male (160-165 cm), intact skeletal structure and in excellent condition. On his skull are the features that allow to place it among the forms of Homo Eerectus (400.000 years) and Homo Neanderthal (85.000 years), in a transitional phase.
