Romania is a rather quiet country, with no big incidents or very dangerous areas. However, there is a place, at just a few kilometers away of Mangalia , a mysterious cave, from where many people that have gone there, did not come back. Hidden inside a hill and full of mystery, the cave from Limanu seems like eating people.
The place beneath the hill from Limanu village was never entirely explored, because of the harsh caves labyrinth where many of the people that ventured here, did not come back to the light. The legends of the locals state that this cave is a gate to the other world. Anyhow, few of the tourists that come to the seaside near this place, know the existence of the cave.
One can enter here through a metallic gate at the bottom of the hill, which is surrounded by some big stones. The stone figures that can be seized at the entrance, made this cave be known as well as “at the Icons”. In the old dialect this word simply means “image” it is not about the Christian icons or anything related.
Here some of the professors tried and dug and made some archeological discoveries – finding Roman and Greek ceramics. At approximately 35 meters from the entrance one can see a big stone on which three human faces are engraved. The other drawings on the walls belong to the Roman- Byzantine period and the flourishing Dacian one.
