Grotta delle Meraviglie (Grotta di Marina)

Where Strada Statale18, km 236.800, Maratea (Potenza)

Grotta delle Meraviglie, the only natural cavity that can be visited in Basilicata, is located along Strada Statale 18 Tirrena Inferiore. It was discovered by chance in 1929, during the construction of the road itself, by a group of workers. The explored part of the cave is about 90 meters long and represents the smallest natural cavity in Italy: the open environment is a natural monument full of stalactites and stalagmites, columns, calcite structures and many "spaghetti", ie extremely thin stalactites delicate. Grotta delle Meraviglie of Maratea can be visited during the summer months.
