Carraro's Grotto

Days Past: Encounter with the Man behind Carraro's Grotto in Yarnell Makes Visit all the More Magical
By DARLA ANDERSON, Special to the Daily Courier, 7/9/2011
One day, probably in 1963, my family decided to stop at a quaint spot in Yarnell identifying itself with large letters as "Carraro's Grotto."

From the slender winding road, we could see giant gray boulders and a handmade railing that looked like the entry. In front was a small space to accommodate cars and to the left was a small gray trailer. The grotto loomed above.

As we parked the car, an elderly man stepped from the door of the trailer, smiling. We sat in our vehicle as he approached and immediately we could see that we were most welcome.

After we had briefly explained our interest in the site, we didn't have to do much more talking. Alessio Carraro introduced himself and pleasantly told us all about his project and invited us to look it over. His grotto consisted of a forged path through dozens of giant boulders, many of which he had labeled according to their shape. Painted in large letters were rock formations named "Noah's Ark," "Alligator," "Elephant," "Salamander," "Rock of Ages" and many others. It was truly a natural rocky wonderland that inspired the imagination of this artistic Italian and greeted us as we slowly walked the fascinating grounds.
