  • They owner took us round and it was very interesting to hear how her grandfather had been digging a well when he discovered the grotto.  more »
  • Lovely little cave which has a rich historic background and is still family owned! Very interesting to see and is definitely worth the €2.50!  more »

  • Why is this place not more highly regarded?! Found this totally by accident when we let ourselves get lost, looks like a small house and you have to ring a buzzer to get attention. This old guy then turns up and gives you a tour of the cave just under this house, was so adorable and just myself and my uncle so private tour. He shows you all the cool formations and why certain areas were different colours. Only €2.50 each, so glad we stumbled upon this!
  • We were curious to see this underground Grotto. You go down a spiral staircase to what is an amazing discovery of Rock formations including stalagtites & stalagmites. There is also a working well too. A local family had discovered it many years ago & dug it out to allow visitors to see, cost 2.5 euros each.
  • Suprisingly beutiful cave under a house. Nice owner shows you around. Only 2.5 euros per person.
  • Nice private cave. But if limited time or itinerary probably can skip.
  • It is worth going here for the novelty of discovering an active limestone cave right under someone's house. And there some nice stalactite and stalagmite formations to have a look at. Well worth the 2.50 entry fee. If you are in town for the temple you may as well pop around the corner and have a look.
