The cave opens at the base of a cone-karst, at the margin of a cultivated plain. The cave splits into two branches; one is inactive with a chain of rooms, the other one is active and it is the source of water for the surrounding fields. Water emerges near the entrance which, in turn, was the ancient spring, now inactive. The cave continues with narrow passages.
