Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Campania / Province of Naples / Island of Capri / Capri / White Grotta
The Grotta Bianca is located on the island of Capri, Italy. It derives its name from white incrustations of calcareous matter upon its sides, and from clusters of white stalactites which hang from the roof and fringe the entrance. The cave faces east, and is situated near the Punta della Chiavioa. The entry, about 70- high, leads into upper and lower caves, of which the former is not easily accessible.
