The complex of the Frasassi Caves, within the Marche Apennines, is one of the most magnificent and fascinating underground routes in the world.
An uncontaminated, hidden and beautiful environment, made up of suggestive spaces and transparent concretions similar to crystal arabesques that are reflected on fairy-tale lakes.
A magical place where life has continued undisturbed for millions of years thanks to the slow and constant work of the drops that continue to dig and build their beautiful architecture.
The overall length of the Frasassi Caves has been estimated at 30 km and its largest environment, the Ancona Abyss, has a volume of approximately 1,000,000 cubic meters, with a height of 240 meters, so much so that it could accommodate even the Duomo of Milan.
The dimensions of the concretions are no less: just mention the Giants, the gigantic 20 m high stalagmites of the Ancona Abyss, or the huge 15 m stalagmite that stands in the center of the Obelisk Room. The fantastic world of the Caves also fascinates with the spectacle of the organ pipes in the Canyon, with the magical scenery of the candles that are reflected on a lake of crystal clear water and with many rooms that are offered to our gaze along the suggestive path.
