Discovered in 1990, this is the largest lava tube known in Portugal. The main tunnel has about 4480 meters long, with heights that arise to 15 meters.

The visit to the Cave should be accompanied by official Guides, and the entrance is made through the “Algar da Ponte”, making way to a trip into the geological curiosities and the geology delights.
