The site of Pantalica in southeast Sicily is best known for its extensive cemeteries of rock-cut chamber tombs dating from the 13th to the 7th centuries BC. There are often said to be over 5000 tombs, although the most recent estimate suggests a figure of just under 4000. They extend around the flanks of a large promontory located at the junction of the Anapo river with its tributary, the Calcinara, about 23 kilometres NW of Syracuse. Together with the city of Syracuse, Pantalica was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005.
