Establishment
“Es una cavidad freática originada por la acción erosivo disolutiva de las aguas sobre las rocas calizas del cerro del Castillo. La longitud total conocida de este complejo subterráneo es de 2.130 m, de los que 1.400 son visitables. La belleza de los lagos, la amplitud de los espacios y la coloración de las variadísimas formaciones de estalactitas y estalagmitas constituyen un conjunto excepcional. Se encuentra ubicada en pleno casco urbano. La tradición popular narra que su descubridor fue un un pastor, aunque la primera referencia histórica sobre su existencia data de 1886.”
