An unusual show cave. An artificial tunnel, 250 m long contains a few minerals and some fake speleothems. It is possible to see daylight through chinks in the wall of the tunnel which is meant to represent a lava cave. The tour ends in the gift shop which sells jewellery, some of which is made on the spot.
