Piana Caves

Titignano Caves loc. La Roccaccia
Titignano Caves loc. La Roccaccia

These caves were already probably known in ancient times. They open near Forello Gorges in location La Roccaccia di Titignano. The soil consists of travertine formations. The main cave is the largest cave existing in Italy in this kind of rock and develops for over 2,500m. Very beautiful for their concretions, they are also important for their documentary value given by the archaeological and paleontological finds probably dating back to the middle Neolithic period, like lithic objects, bone rests, and ceramic pieces. The gallery has a mainly labyrinthian development. Of particular interest is the so-called "Sala dei Vortici", populated by bats. The caves can be visited together with speleological guides (Gruppo Speleo Todi).
