The Caves of Cusa lie 3 km away from the town of Campobello di Mazara.They had been operating from 600 BC  up to 409 BC and had been an inexhaustible mine of raw material, essential to build Selinunte, including the temples.

Due to the war against the Carthaginian, ended up with the destruction of Selinunte, the Caves of Cusa were suddenly dismissed. Since then  they have been the same as they were, in company with olive trees.
