FeaturesRED PATH/ BLUE PATH
The two paths cross different cave areas; the red path is more demanding than the blue path due to some narrow but short tunnels (approximately 15-20 meters maximum) and in any case accessible to all those in normal physical condition; however, it is not recommended for obese people, those suffering from claustrophobia and heart disease.
The clay and humidity of the cave make the paths quite slippery.
Those who participate in the speleological route will still be able to also visit the tourist route, given that the accesses to the speleological routes are located at the end of the artificial walkways.
