Inquire Booking

The “Cova del Somo”, has serves as a shelter for pastors, hinters, crooks and fugitives. This cave is inhabited by a small being called Somodytes Escolai, up to this moment unique in the world and only found in this cave? Will you be able to see it?
This cave has a total distance of 1318 m. and a maximum depth of -77 m. After the entrance a steep descending ramp goes on until it hits an ample chamber. To the left, a narrow passage with the shape of a balcony, which we will use to descend with the help of a  handrail, we will do some rappel and contemplate a multitude of formations (estalactites, estalagmites, etc.)
