  • This cave is not a place occupied by prehistoric men like most in this area but a cave with stalactites, stalagmites, etc. It is relatively small, which has the advantage of being very close to the concretions, in the order of a few centimeters, at worst a few tens of centimeters. As such, it is quite unique and well worth a visit. On the other hand, there are fabulous concretions that you don't see anywhere else. Not to mention the guide who knew how to interest us both by her knowledge and by her humor.

  • Memorable experience to see what nature can create within hundreds thousands years. Perfect guide takes you through the cave, highlighting all curiosities. Interesting for all ages.
  • My favourite cave. Lots of stairs to the entrance but after that the cave itself is beautiful, and you're aloud to take pictures! (No flash). Loads and loads of calcite crystals and formations and the guide was great fun. She showed so much knowledge and obviously loved her job and we fed off her enthusiasm. Magical place.
