  • Beautiful, mesmerizing cave, with a lot of interesting scenes, spacious rooms and optional narrow routes. Everything is well lit. Skip some parts when you're claustrophobic. Very kind personnel, ready to tell some history and facts. Well maintained and very safe paths. We've spent over an hour exploring the different parts.
  • Amazing cave! Nice visit. It takes about one hour to fully appreciate all! It’s very cool inside!!
