    Great cave, very high with steep stairs, absolutely worth seeing! Login call ahead to avoid unnecessary waiting time.

    Breathtaking sights within a cave. Guide was informative and made the whole visit even more interesting. Well worth it!  more »

    On a hot day visiting the Grotto will prove to be very suitable. Tickets are sold at the entrance 7.50; visit only groups: descent the stairs down 30 meters at the site at the bottom of the story guide in Italian and English, the climb back. If you go slowly, it is not exhausting. The all-Pro-all minutes 40-45. The cave looks fabulous, but taking pictures is strictly prohibited. Next to the parking facilities Restaurant-Cafe-ice cream-water-coffee or a complete meal.

  • Impressive place, but you will not see more but just the entrance of the Grotta.
  • Rather impressing!
  • Back after so many years in this cave, I was fortunate enough to taste it with greater maturity and this gave me a very strong emotion. I seemed to see a sculpture by Canova. a perfect sculpture. the immensity of its stalagmite ... dizzy physical path to reach the first down ... and then the emotional Vertigo in observing the many perfect details. a guide which explains everything very competently prepared .... really pleasantly excited ... To report only the descent is very steep ... and for those who suffer from Vertigo. not the greatest ... nay ... I would say avoid.

  • A gorgeous cave, perhaps the most beautiful among the many extant in Sardinia.

  • Very beautiful cave with a variety of stalactites and stalagmites. Particularly impressive is the large Stalagnate in the middle of the cave. The leadership is quite comfortable to understand (especially since there's a supplement on probably every language) in English. The signage has apparently improved, because on the main road, the junction is marked (if not too noticeable customary here) and then it goes along almost only still the road. The admission price is okay with €7,5. The sight from the top of the cavern that is breathtaking. Worthwhile in any case.
