Bell Caves, Israel

What makes the echoing sound of these caves unusual, is the way the different chambers are connected together. They are named the Bell Caves because of the shape, which also seems an appropriate name for a place with such interesting acoustics.

Ear of Dionysius, Sicily, Italy

Legend has it that the acoustic focus in this cavern was exploited to enable the whispers of prisioners held here to be overheard. However today, only the reverberance of this vast space can be enjoyed.
