If you are curious about how people used to live in Scicli you must visit this little museum in an ancient cave house. It brings the past alive in a way a large museum cannot.

We found this little museum on TA and walked up one morning. It’s very like the museum caves in Matera and apparently people also lived in the caves here until after the last war. We had to wait a few minutes for the previous visitors...More

It's a lovely walk to this caringly decorated cave that displays how people used to live in Scicli. Would def. recommend to go

We went to the cave museum and met a very nice man, Carmelo. It was a charming place to see. A lot of fun for a cheap price.

After a bit of a climb up and not very well signposted, we eventually found this charming little bit of history on the hillside of the charming town of Scicli. Raimondo Carmello has created a fitting memorial to the way his grandparents lived in the...More

Don't miss this. It is a bit out of the way, and as yet not suitable for people with mobility problems. Ron Carmelu has created a fascinating experience of life in the caves of Scicli

Walking by the steps leading up to Ron Carmelu. It was very interesting and educational. He was very accommodating and answered all questions. He explained in depth how they lived 120 years ago. At end he tried to sell us souvenirs and he succeeded. If...More
