Due to its morfogenetic complexity the Valea Rea valley cave labirynth belongs to the first ten caves of the world. This is the most complex cave, discovered so far in the country. Its length is 19 m with a depth of 190m. Right after the entrance comes a 120m deep row of pit, then a Mineralogy Museum.

Aragonit, gypsum, quartz, malachit, rodocrozit...geologists have discovered 37 kinds of minerals, out of which 6 were utterly unknown in cave environment. Some thousands of m2 we can find full with gypsum flowers, outsanding calcit-aragonit creatures, crystals in all kinds of shapes and size.

It is an active, watery cave, where we can find the largest waterfall underground in the country, 82m high.
