  • A unique place, observe the chimneys of a volcano a located, are marks of lava flows, is worth the excursion

  • At the entrance, was later explained the volcanic phenomenon, by a receptionist very friendly and attentive. The gruta do natal is a lava tube composed of two parts, one accessible to all people and the second just recommended to people with "good" mobility-as it is a "way" more meandering, which requires more dexterity, in that in the end one has to download to go through more estreitecido tube. That is, for example, an elderly person who has difficulty in walking on level ground is not advised this second part. It is a pleasant visit, very beautiful, interesting, worth!

  • Nice but short lava tube. They give you a helmet but you have to be flexible on your knees if you don't want to feel the ceiling on your back in some passages. Gruta das Torres on Pico island remains in a different league.
  • Stunning volcanic cave. A must-see in Terceira. Don't miss the hike to the nearby "mistérios".
  • Great staff, great cave! Mind your head
  • very interesting
  • Not as good as algar do carvao. But still worth it. It is a bit rough, you have to wear an helmet (provided), and there are some lower passages where you almost have to get on your knees. It's basically an old lava tunel where you can see different types of lava formations.
