  • A very incredible experience. This cavern is very well preserved and currently active. the impressive calcium stalactites, stalagmite and columns are extraordinary. The guided visit takes approximately 45 minutes and one can visit 4 different cameras where the formations are very different from each other. photos are not allowed and the price is 10€ for the guided tour.
