From Lama dei Peligni to the Grotta del Cavallone
Categories of Articles
From this terrace a wide view of the valley of Taranta can be enjoyed, and the fountain supplies drinking water. The return itinerary proceeds through another route: you follow the path to the Refuge at 1610 m, then proceed through the Grotta del Cavallone, and from there descend to the valley.
The celebrated Grotte del Cavallone open within the Taranta Valley and proceed in the territory of Lama dei Peligni. They are the longest known grottos in the Maiella group, spanning for total 1305 m. The first 500 meters will offer you an experience of absolute beauty, with their exhibition of stalactites and stalagmites. Presently the grottos can be visited for a part, and the entrance is reached by cableway from Taranta.
