Natal Cave

Angra do Heroísmo


The Natal Cave is an important geologic legacy located in the heart of the amazing Terceira Island, Azores Archipelago.

Once the Cave was named as “Cavalo” (Horse) as here were found remaining of a horse skeleton that probably fell through the opening in the entrance of the cave.

Located on the border of the Natural Forest Reserve of Santa Bárbara and Mistérios Negros Mountain, in front of the beautiful Lagoa do Negro Lake, this Natal Cave is an extensive geologic formation composed by fluid lavas, nowadays solidified, that flew in different directions, forming several tunnels, ramifications and stalactites, including the main lava tunnel with about 697 meters long.

This Cave provides a Shelter-House for the visitors, and an exhibition about volcanism in the Azores Archipelago.
