At the start of the first part, just past the siphon, a steep flight of stairs leads to an enormous stalactite formation. Going through a narrower part you then enter a magnificent room decorated with various types of spectacular limestone formations.You then reach the bottom of a vertiginous vertical shaft, 90 metres high, which crosses a succession of stratigraphic layers emphasized by erosion. You go up the shaft along a practical walkway up to a height of 35 metres, to then enter a vast hall whose ceiling is carved by a meander made by the retrogression of an ancient waterfall.Going through a narrow canyon, you then go back down and, crossing the Tunnel of Wonders reach the first part again, to then continue into the second, completing the tour.
