GROTTA DEL CAVALLONE
GROTTE DEL CAVALLONE
From the apartment is just 53 min. by car.
On Majella there are more than one hundred more or less fully explored caves, of very different size and structure, but the most beautiful is Grotta del Cavallone. Although it is located at the top of the steep Taranta Peligna valley, on the southern slope of the mountain, it was organized and equipped for tourism and is easy enough to explore. A handy cable car actually departs from the road just outside Taranta Peligna. The route is about one kilometre and winds through huge chambers, all fascinating and well lit to enhance the phantasmagorical effect of the stalactites and stalagmites, and grottoes that are often enormous.
