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.

  • Is not suitable for people like me who suffer from Vertigo. A column of over 30 meters overhead view is still spectacular and the tale of how could be such a wonder of nature, overshadowing even the descent to admire from the bottom up. Worth a visit especially in summer when the outside temperature touches the 35° while in the cave is firmly on 17°.

  • 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. ...

  • 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 ...

  • The cave was discovered by chance after a Bush fire at that time... An adventurous descent into the cave. .. small but with impressive stalagmite
