A DEPARTURE POINT FOR VISITING THE CITY

Grotta della Spipola

Grotta della Spipola

The Spipola cave, along with the Farneto cave, is one of the most important and spectacular attractions at the Parco Regionale dei Gessi e dei Calanchi Bolognesi. Discovered in 1932 by Luigi Fantini, who lowered himself into the cave from the famous Buco del Calzolaio, or "Cobbler's Gap", it is a route covering 500 metres popular with guided tours.

The tour is a true speleological experience that enables visitors to learn about the park's underground karst morphologies while passing through chambers, tunnels, alabaster beds, and ceiling channels, ending with a visit to the enclosed sinkhole.
