If you look up the history of the place first (and take a torch!) this cave is worth the hike to get there. The views on the way up are great, too. But take plenty of water if you plan to walk there.

A nice excursion for a relaxed day. It's not very hard to go and you have to be with someone who knows the history about this place! Don't forget the torches!

Before going there read the history of the cave. Take a torch as it is very dark there. Strongly recommend
