Geocache Description:

Ricadente nei comuni di Ferla, Cassaro e Sortino, in provincia di Siracusa, la Riserva Naturale Orientata Pantalica, Valle dell'Anapo e Torrente Cavagrande comprende al suo interno l'importante Necropoli di Pantalica, che inizia a sorgere nel XIII sec. a.C. quando le popolazioni indigene spostano i loro insediamenti dalle zone costiere a zone montane. Interessante seguire la traccia della vecchia ferrovia, risalente ai primi del '900, che si snoda lungo la Valle dell'Anapo.
Gli ingressi alla Riserva si raggiungono da Siracusa, via SS114-124 in direzione Floridia e da qui procedendo sino all'ingresso Fusco di Sortino (SP 28), ovvero continuando (SP 30) sino all'ingresso Ponte Diga di Ferla-Cassaro.
