  • Visit to the grotto was surprisingly positive: very beautiful place with maintenance work and exceptional exploration! Congratulations to all involved in the exploration and conservation of this natural wealth. Recommend!

  • It is worth visiting in a complex of caves, land inside where you can descend with complete security. Monitored visit with good explanations and images, very good views and sensations

  • These caves were discovered on July 27, 1947. The length of these caves is 11500 meters. For visiting, about 600 m and up to 110 meters in depth are available. The temperature inside the cave is 17 ℃. Illuminates about 3000lamps. You can visit at the same time in a group of up to 30 people. The descent goes down the stairs, and the climb up is by elevator. Inside the cave there are several names: "Great Hall", "Red Hall", "Golden Room", there is also "Devil's Mouth", or as it was called "Mother-in-law". All around are fascinated by stalactites and stalagmites, which are millions of years old.   It will be interesting to everyone, both adults and children.
  • A beautiful cave with quite a diverse set of Chambers, stalactites and stalagmites. The tour is guided with guides who speak both Portuguese and English, requires coming down many wet steps reaching the depth of approximately 110 meters (a lift will bring the visitors back up). Spoiler alert: it would be a 5 star rating, but the artificial water fountains in the last lake or so called "event room" have definitely put me off.
