#2 of 8 in Nature in Province of Nuoro
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.

  • Being around you couldn't do anything but return to witness this spectacle of nature. Certainly this visit will leave you breathless. The stalactite is something mighty column, connecting the bottom of the cave until his time. great guides. Unique show.

  • Great cave and great area of Sardinia! Worth noting in Arpil and maybe May the tour times are 10:00, 11:00, 12:00 then 15:00,16:00, 17:00
  • Extraordinary otherworldly beauty... Well Well worth it. Contrary to what the other reviewer said it does not feel like "just the entrance". The first chamber is still extensive cavernous underworld with infinite alien architecture to boggle the mind. The "tour" which offers you plenty of time to wander around the generous open areas in the first cavern takes you to the vertical entrance to the further cave system. Our tour guide lady was charming and knowledgeable. I would come again, and highly recommend it! Tours are on the hour between 10.00 and 17.00. See photos...
  • Spectacular vertical cavern .. huge internal space with amazing formations .. No photos allowed unfortunately and the tour isn't particularly informative or interesting .. Still well worth visiting... Lots of steps, wear sensible shoes !
  • Was so much impressed with the grotto - highly recommended to visit!
  • Captivating cave visit with good guides. Lasts about an hour but no photography allowed due to safety reasons which will become apparent when you enter. Nice and cool inside and would recommend good footwear although no need for hiking boots. Timing is important if you want to enjoy the restaurant outside mornings best. Last thing if you decide after your visit to go the the aquarium at Cala Gonone then be careful as google maps will take you the steepest way...very very scary.
