  • Please note when this attraction is open. In the afternoon the cave only opened at 14:00. Gruta do Natal is a bit tricky because they didn't want to change anything. In many other places there are caves that are formed by water. This is, however, formed by flowing lava and thus crude. There are even stalagmites of lava. The cave is not very large and it is a bit of climbing and scramring. The helmet you get is really needed. There are the necessary signs indicating details. You can buy a combination ticket to see two caves but for us the Natal was enough to get an impression of this volcanic nature violence. In The reception room is a lot of exhibited where we understood little of it. It would have been better if we had read about this in Dorry & Ton

  • Named after it because, during the Christmas period, when possible, Christmas mass is held there. At the entrance, purchased the ticket, a protective helmet is provided. Some spots are low and hardened lava can be very dangerous. The Gruta is less spectacular than the Algar Do Carveo, but in addition to being very suggestive, it is interesting as you can clearly distinguish the various lava flows and the different shapes that they have taken. Explanatory panels explain, summarily, what you are looking at.

  • Very interesting and exciting. It wasn't too big so it was quite quick to get around. I would recommend taking the appropriate wear such as running shoes and old tshirts
  • This is a. A rural beauty. One of only a few in the world and you’re able to see the top and the bottom. I did a joint ticket for a few euros extra which gives access to both.
