This is not to be missed. The steps leading down are narrow and winding, building up to a wonderful sight. Our guide was very informative and took time to show the grotto at it's best.

This is Ok for 15 mins for something different to do and to escape the sun. Friendly enough lady who let us in and we were left on our own down the cave. Reasonably interesting but very small and all can be done in less...More

Interesting little place to visit. During the tour they explained how the grotto was discovered. The tour guide was a bit odd and emotionless. Only 2.50 euros per person

This could so easily be overlooked. An amazing little grotto owned and run by a local family - part of their history. Two wonderful teenagers showed us around and we thoroughly enjoyed the short tour. You won't need more than 20 minutes or so put...More
