Cueva de la Piedra Brillante is very recent discovery. It was discovered, explored and mapped in 2016. The cave has a huge chmber with dry floor and a river passage which extend to both sides. The dry part near the entrance is used for touristic visits. For this reason the the entrance was gated by a iron bar gate. Nevertheless the cave is not developed and requires crawling on all fours.
