Today we are revisiting another area from the past around Syracuse…the necropolis at Pantalica comprising approximately 5000 tombs dug into the rock in the first half of the 8th Century BC.
My image doesn’t give you any idea as to the extent of this place, and truth be told I didn’t see much of it myself….time and energy prevented. But I can well believe it was quite an edifice. What little we saw went quite a way into the rock, and the tombs would have been in different levels vertically as well as the huge horizontal sweep of them. Very industrious people, those that built in ancient times.
