Description: This cave is the lower exit of the Cueto-Coventosa crossing, the jewel of vertical caving in Cantabria and Spain. This journey begins with the descent of 300 m in a single vertical well, up to a maximum depth of 820 m. Its arduous exploration and numerous accidents give an idea of the extreme hardness of this journey. A journey desired by all but only suitable for the strongest and most experienced cavers. The visit, however, runs through the galleries of Coventosa.

It is known worldwide for the Gallery of Ghosts.


The visit you can do two levels of difficulty of caving:

The general visit for people over 16 years of age, is undoubtedly the most complete visit to the Asón Valley, rappelling, large galleries, sets of unique stalactites and stalagmites, as well as a privileged natural environment make it a unique and incomparable visit.                   The abseiling area is suitable for minors from 16 years old.

Costs: 30 € (guide service and collective material include, transport not included).
