Grotte di Toirano, Toirano

#1 of 34 in Nature in Liguria
Considered “show caves” for the beauty and accessibility, Grotte di Toirano displays a remarkable karst cave system. Spelunkers found the system in 1950, but they were beaten in time by prehistoric man who found it some 14000 years earlier, and by the cave bear, which left bones, paw prints, and scratches on the walls. The required tour guides speak multiple foreign languages. Wear sensible shoes for potentially slippery walking surfaces, as well as clothes appropriate for 16 C (60 F).

  • Caves really very impressive thanks to the presence of calcareous formations unique in some ways, as well as that of the fossil record. Very well prepared the Guide.

  • Although not the largest cave you could imagine, the cave of Bàsura limestone structures or witch of impressive beauty that combined with interesting prehistoric traces of the place and the famous cemetery of cave bears make this place an attraction for those who are near. Tour which you can combine with a visit to the beautiful Toirano, climbing streets of limestone cave behind Tamim or why not for a ride in the wild Apennines Savona. Discovered in 1950 by some guys of Toirano, is rich in important and precious evidence of primitive man of ice age. In some rooms and corridors were found a graveyard of cave bears and carbonaceous signs on the walls caused the torches used by men-hunters

  • On a TOUR of LIGURIA, BEFORE RETURNING to the area, with a GROUP of 18 PEOPLE, could not and should not MISS a VISIT to the "caves of TOIRANO. This Country Which ALSO HAS A LOVELY And HOSPITABLE Village, Not To Be Overlooked, HAS Its Flagship In The CAVES. Are difficult, are winding, long to visit (1 hour and 15 minutes), some points to be addressed cautiously, but are unique, and the guide will explain all the beauty visit Assistant with stalactites and stalagmites varied (some seem real groups of corals), with a thousand nuances due to the countless varieties of ore materials with designs created by nature that will intrigue and enchant you, with artifacts from ancient bones of bears and humans, as well as prints of animals and early man. Are unique caves worth visiting. The cost to enter is adequate to the show: 12 euro per person.
