I remember ...

Springs everywere, amazing luxuriant vegetation, ... sunbeams pass through the tall trees and light spectacled salamanders, so numerous that you must be careful not to crush them while walking ... travertine, stalactites ...
I cannot understand why such a heaven on earth had been called "Devil's ditch" ...
