The cave was discovered in 2004 by the Archaeological Speleological Environmental Group of Urzulei (GASAU). It’s located in the southwestern margin of the Supramonte of Urzulei, west and not far from the homonymous Nuraghe at an altitude of 975 m asl.
The access is narrow and you have to proceed crawling and climbing down with a rope until, after having crossed a landslide and a joint way, you reach a big hall, this gets deeper on the east side until reaching the depth of 88mt from the entrance. The main hall , divided in other three halls, in part divided for some collapse, limestone deposits, column and casting that makes some form of partition walls and it partially occludes the section. The ceiling of the room, walls and the bottom of the cave are rich in concretions that, in certain cases, are fallen on the ground under their own weight and have provided the basis for the growth of new concretions, in a continuous accumulation of wonderful examples of his evolution. Interesting is the room of shale almost completely set on metamorphic Paleozoic rock. From its shale ceiling hangs sails and cannulas and light-colored stalactites which makes contrast with the black rock.
The presence of water is, for much of the year, shown only for the trickle, but rises to form small streams when the rains intensifies and lasts few days making the underground scenery even more exciting; the air flow is felt in the early narrower stretches and disappears where the cave widens.
