The site has been a tourist attraction since its discovery in 1863. The grotto was carved into the stone by the water and houses several features: first of all there is the Fairies' Fountain, where legend has it that anyone who dips their left hand into the fountain will be granted a wish. After 63 twists and turns in the passage, there is a crashing 50 metre-high subterranean waterfall, whose thundering can be heard from afar.
