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.

  • As well as the bue marino another one of those places that words don't do justice ... an enchanted place inside a majestic mountain ... you wouldn't ever get a place this inside ...

  • Recently stayed at this beautiful cave that develops vertically and contains Europe's highest stalactite ... is really worth a visit because it's gorgeous, rich wonderful stalactites and stalagmites. My advice is not to get lost!

  • 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.
