The Grotto of Ispinigoli

The Grotto of Ispinigoli is famous for its spectacular stalagmites, the opening cave has a magnificent 38m high stalagmitic column and the walls have a mixture of wonderful concretions and limestone cascades of great beauty.

These caves show the presence of man in ancient times as early as the prenuragic period when it is believed to have been used as a place of worship. The famous chasm inside the cave is in fact called the “Cavern of the Virgins” from the ancient belief of human offerings.

The Grotto is open to tourists from April to October from 9a.m. to 1p.m. and from 3p.m to 6p.m.; admission fee: 7 Euros.

To get there drive on the road from Dorgali to Orosei, a few km from Dorgali there is a signpost for the grotto.
