Cenni storici e sul territorio:

Grotte (Sicilian: Grutti) is a town in the province of Agrigento whose name derives from the Punic word Erbessus, which means “rich on caverns”. In fact, the landscape is shaped by limestone with many caves and caverns, such as those found in the rock called Rocca Petra with its numerous caverns from prehistoric times, as well as the characteristic tombs of the Scintilìa located at a few kilometers from the town.
