In the 10th century there was a Basilian monastery that later on became the Christian sanctuary of the Madonna della Grotta. There’s solid proof that the caves surrounding Praia a Mare have been inhabited since the Upper Paleolithic. Nature and history here are the main attractions: Sanctuary of the Madonna della Grotta, the Castle, the Fiuzzi Tower, and Dino’s Island’s Tower. On Dino’s Island you may also admire beautiful caves and protected species such as the Primula palinuri (flowers), and Alcyonacea (corals).
