(4.1/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Grotta di Ispinigoli houses a 38 m (125 ft) column, the tallest in Europe and one of the tallest in the world. Enter the cave through the immense chamber to admire this large stalactite-stalagmite compound, juxtaposed against smaller stalagmite clusters throughout. This karstic grotto also includes the Abyss of the Virgins, a deep hole leading to a 12 km (7.5 mi) series of caves, where human bones and jewelry dating back to the Bronze Age were found. Grotta di Ispinigoli is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Dorgali Edition.

  • After an 80-minute journey, route specially for this attraction (which happens to be open daily) we found the gates closed. Never again. Not to mention the number on the chart information specially cleared with the marker.

  • Cave very impressive, especially for children, who could see one of Europe's largest stalactite. Easy route for kids also lasting about 20 minutes accompanied by a guide who gave us information about the cave. The only drawback, you cannot take pictures even without the use of flash, manco were at the Louvre where you can do. ...

  • Deserves more publicity and greater prestige this natural wonder not far from the road that connects to Orosei from Dorgali in the eastern part of Sardinia. A very long staircase leads to ca 50 meters inside the bowels of the Earth to admire one of Europe's highest stalactites! A breathtaking for a short visit (va 30 minutes by driving) but intense. It's really worth visiting, children from 4yo and up at least.

  • Fantastic fossil dripstone cave, where you can admire the stalagmite in Europe's highest (38 meters!). Tours are scheduled every hour and take about 30 minutes, in order not to upset the ecosystem with artificial lighting.

  • One enormous natural cavity open, but so spectacular to deserve absolutely. Shame about the group too numerous, but we are in August ...
