|1953||passage filled with concrete.|
This cave is extremely beautifully decorated. The visitor follows the main passage and soon enters the first chamber. This huge hall is dominated by a fine display of calcite in its centre. The fantastic display of calcite and the beautiful lighting make this an extraordinary sight. However, thats not all, there are two more chambers, a little smaller but still well decorated.
A rather strange thing happened in 1953. A passage which was said be connected to Morocco 53km away, was filled with concrete. They made it really bomb proof, as they filled in 190m³ of concrete.
