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.

  • The story of these caves is extremely charming, in fact know that a stalactite grows to 10 cm every hundred years ... Not to be missed especially for the presence of Central Europe's largest

  • Incredibly beautiful original masterpieces that nature produces. Good preparation of the Guide although it would be more correct to have more pictures below Italian and foreign groups by selecting groups. Lacking the accommodation, bars and hotels closed and do not have a coin-operated vending machine and a toilet.

  • 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
