The province of Ragusa is full of archaeological evidence of past ages.
One of the most impressive places is undoubtedly the "Trabacche Cave", recently arranged and made fully available by the "Soprintendenza ai Beni Culturali".
It is not really a natural cave but a small catacomb excavated in the limestone plateaus that characterize the Iblean mountains. By tradition, catacombs are the places where the early Christians hid themselves to escape the Roman persecution. Today this vision has been greatly resized. The catacomb was in fact the cemetery of excellence of the first Christian communities. They continued to be built even after the 313rd century, the year of the Edict of Tolerance, emanated by Emperor Constantine, who definitively ended the persecution.
