The Sibyl's Cave in Cuma (Naples)

The Antro

The so-called Sybil's Cave is a gallery of Greek-Roman period placed near the Archaeological Park of Cuma.

It has often been identified with the place where the Sibilla Cumana he would have pronounced his own oracles, but scholars today tend to get it out. It is likely that it was a gallery built in defensive purpose for the city and the port below.

The gallery, abandoned in the twelfth century following the depopulation of the town of Cumae, was discovered by the archaeologist Amedeo Maiuri in the thirties of the last century.
