The natural Caves of Labante are the prime example of travertine caves in Italy and Europe.
In particular the travertine here is called “Sponga“, which has formed as a result of the karst phenomenon process.
As caves of this type are very rare, they have been classified as a site of Community Importance (SCI).
Above the primary cave there is a natural waterfall amongst the moss and other bountiful plants, whilst the small cave abounds in spectacular stalactites. In ancient times the Etruscans of Kainu, used travertine as a building material and more recently it was excavated for ornamental purposes and to build the sanctuary of Brasa.
