Cueva del Agua - Iznalloz


La Cueva del Agua is located at Pico del Asno of Sierra Harana at an altitude of 1730 meter in the municipality of Iznalloz (Granada).

The opening with a height of 180 meter gives access to one of the most important caves in the province, .

 

Describing this is somewhat complex because of the labyrinth of passages it has. You will first enter the Hall of Columns, a narrow corridor occupied with columns that after about 50 m opens and flows into the Great Cave. At this point you realize the large proportions of this cave. Along with this curious espeleotema, spectacular formations can be seen, predominantly large sets of stalagmites (Sima de los Dientes de Dragón, Cámara de los Endriagos, etc.), large stalagmites mantles, covered by beautiful crystallizations "coralline" (Sala de la Música, Sima del Plus Ultra) and next to these formations small crystal clear lagoons (Laguna Glacier, Green Lake).

 

Small group visits are now allowed, maximum 14 people, on workdays.
