Gargano’s promontory is dotted with sinkholes, large karst depressions formed by weathering in the shape of small craters. The largest one, second only to Pozzatina sinkhole in the countryside of Sannicandro Garganico, is the Centopozzi (hundred wells) sinkhole, the third largest in Europe which draws its name from the countless wells, today partly covered, once used as water reservoirs. 
Located inside the Gargano National Park, the sinkhole has underwent effective intervention for the restoration of the main cisterns, drystone walls and the countless natural beauties that made up its surrounding landscape. 
In fact, around the sinkhole unfold interesting thematic routes wchi characterize the area of Rignano Garganico, including among others, the Grotta Pagliacci and its museum, as well as the rural chapel of Madonna di Cristo.
