The hidden Jewels of Le Marche: The caves of Camerano
Share

Written by : Mariano Pallottini| 0 | Travel


There is a labyrinth of caves under the historical centre of the town excavated in the sandstone. For many years these caves were believed to be the ruins of ancient sandstones caves or even cellars used to store wine. More recent explorations and in-depth study and the finds discovered in opening routes opened for tourists led to the discovery however of architectural and bas-relief decorations which have very little to do with mere sandstone caves or storerooms: dome and vault shaped ceilings, circular chambers and columns with architectural details, decorations with friezes, ornaments and religious symbols were found throughout the caves.
