The project

The project stands out for its undisputed protagonist which is the Hyblean Plateau, in particular, for the countless and wonderful caves which is made up of. The main feature of this territory are the river valleys made up of limestone which carve the plateau creating natural protected areas , such as the one of the caves.

The area in which the caves are located represent a great environmental and scenic heritage unknown and sometimes neglected, probably because it is less accessible compared to the others areas which are populated and also easier to reach.

The aim of the project is to enhance and make use of these areas because they represent a huge open-air laboratory suitable for scientific, natural, ecological and environmental trainings , but they also represent an historical and cultural heritage because of the way in which the mankind has adapted and has used the environmental resources.
