The power of water
The Majestic Su Marmuri Cave is located in the territory of Ulassai, a small village nestled among the rocks.
The cave was formed due to the strength of the water which, over thousands of years, dug out an underground passage. A web of underground cavities of karstic origin, of notable tourist interest, among the most beautiful and spectacular in Italy extends for almost a kilometre and is characterized by a unique landscape of stalactites and stalagmites.
Among the numerous open cavities, you can admire the Grande Sala, in a rectangular shape, the sala dell’Organo, whose concretions remind us of the tubes of the musical instrument, the Sala del Cactus, with tall stalagmites similar to cacti, the Sala dei Pipistrelli, the Galleria delle Vaschette and the Terminale hall. Thanks to its base temperature, in the winter period, the biggest known Italian colony of bats seek shelter here.
Almost all the bats of this species present in Sardinia migrate to this cave, which therefore plays a fundamental role in the conservation of the ecosystem.
The su Marmuri Caves are, therefore an absolutely unmissable opportunity to admire one of the most amazing natural places in wonderful Sardinia. Not to be missed.
