Grotta di Ispinigoli, Dorgali
Categories: Caves, Nature & Parks
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.

This is an amazing place and not to be missed. It has the longest stalagmite at 38 metres and has guided tours which are really brilliant through the most beautiful formations

Best looking for signs on restaurant Ispinigoli. For visitors there is a 30-minute lead in Italian and English from April until October each full hour ca. In winter, it may be that the visiting hours are restricted. Only the first Chamber of the now dry cave can be visited. There is a stalagmite 38 metres in length in her. Another feature is that there are few stalactites from the ceiling in the cave. Most are located on the walls, so that they look like frosting. Because the cave entrance is almost at the highest point of the cave you must descend a narrow ca 40 m stairway to the base. The guide is therefore nothing for people who have problems with it. Taking pictures is completely prohibited in the cave inexplicably and offered no shots in good quality at the ticket booth. For me, this and that leadership is verhältnsmäßig expensive, are reasons for the devaluation.show original

The largest stalactite in Europe and the second largest in the world extends from the floor to the ceiling. The pillar is formed when a stalagmite with a stalactite has grown together. Of the cave received its name because Ispinigoli means something like thorn in the throat. Many steppes steps descending to the bottom of the cave in the middle of which stands the Stalanat. You get a detailed guide in English and will be taken down in groups. I'm sorry that it is not allowed to take pictures.show original

Impressive place, but you will not see more but just the entrance of the Grotta.
Enzo GiacaloneBeautiful, good work. Pity that the complex is browsable little else would be wonderful.show original
Rainer SteinnagelAs already mentioned the signs to the cave is not great (the restaurant of the same name next to the cave is better signposted) and therefore it is hard to find. It is a very beautiful stalactite cave in which appear particularly stalagmites. The largest is 38 m long. It is released only the first Hall for visitors. Immediately after the cave entrance you can see this among themselves and reach their reason about a partially close 40 m stairway. Unfortunately you must shoot only at the full hour guided tours in Italian and English language in the cave and that both with and incomprehensible that even without Flash is completely prohibited. The statement was: "many people do not know how you turn off the Flash and also could someone fall and get hurt because he pays attention when taking pictures not on the way" the also offered no images of the inside of the cave is a further point which annoys. For these reasons, there are also only three stars from me.show original
Charleen RümlingUnfortunately, it was here very saved as regards the signs. If you have no navigation system here, one is lost and circling for hours around. The Lady at the issuance of the cards was also very unfriendly and wanted no longer let us, because we just 3 minutes there were too late. So an obsession with the time as to what you actually don't know of the South Europeans. For the almost 3 hour ride it was not worth so absolutely.show original
