The “troglodyte” caves
From the town square you will see a bell tower with a clock on the side, go to the side entrance and you will find the tourist office. Here you buy your ticket and arrange a tour guide to the caves. We joined a large tour that was just about to leave, you can not go to the caves unless it is with a guided tour of people.
The entrance to the caves is found in a narrow street off the main square, seen on the right hand side of this photo, just beyond the motorbike. It is well hidden although not too far to walk from the tourist office, which is located in the street to the left of this photo
The cave dwellings are where the poorest people lived between the 13th and 18th Century. You can see the interior of eight cave dwellings on the guided tour.
Light is at a premium so you can just see if you squint a little, the spinning wheel which was used in one of the caves.
A large fireplace where people cooked and sat around for warmth.
This is a water system that was used in one of the later caves. Water was gathered from the water which would seep from above ground to trickle along the wooden tough and drip into a container below.
