    For me that I've never been to the caves in the area are nn, together with my family we took the opportunity to visit it, what about all those years I was lost a natural spectacle, nn I was expecting something like, let's say that you have to go there for good, first footwear, trainers or trekking, besides a sweatshirt for low temperatures inside the caves hover between 8-10 degrees After climbing for about half an hour with a "cage" on the Summit of the mountain beautiful scenery to get about 1400 meters, after you go walk to the entrance of stairs set into the rock, there are many steps make them quiet otherwise you arrive on destroyed, after which enjoy immense caves ... stepende ..., the only downside are the toilets one down malfunctioning , another on idem unique bathing men-women so long queues, and if you have to have lunch at the restaurant is down that Summit have no pos then nn can be paid with cash, for a great disservice these days. ...

    Really nice not to be missed. The climb in the stunning scenery that occurs deserves for basket. The cave is to visit. The guides are very helpful.

    All wonderful but after riding with the beautiful cable railway, we began the descent into the cave and ... is the lights went out. They didn't come out with the help of the generator and, probably for the same problem, we waited an hour before they do reactivate the cable railway. OK, it can happen and it's no one's fault, but the shame was denied reimbursement of admission (19 euros!) since we paid for something we did not partake.
