Do you want to walk inside a volcano? And have an excellent view? This is the place to visit. 338 steps and 80m down the hearth is the challenge. It's cold inside, 12 13 degrees and always "rain" drops, so I advise a rain coat...More

Not often one can see a cave that huge and accessible. Admission is only 6 Euros. It was that far off the beaton path. You got to go if you visit Terceira.

If you´ve been before to the inside of a volcano you know what you can see over there and more or less all of them follow the same structure. This one is different, with the possibility to see from the open crater to the deeper...More

The size of this cave is quite amazing. Very deep and wonderful colours. When we went it was quite wet and slippy. There are lots of steps so take care if you aren't stable on your feet. It was €6 to enter or €9 if...More

If you expect more than walk down a cave, then this is not for you. Going down and have the opportunity to see how nature works into creating this amazing cave. An simple idea of how volcanoes can transform and became a wonder of nature.

Awesome experience walking down into a cave. Limited hours so be sure to check availability before booking. Also, you can buy a two-cave pass for this one and the other (about 15 minutes away).

there's a lot to see here, and a lot of people here to see it, so it can feel overwhelming and noisy. Would be better if they limited the number of people inside, and perhaps lead guided tours so you actually knew what you were...More

I believe it's open all year round. We were there in January. It is only open in the afternoon. Enjoy your trip. I love the Azores!
