The Grotta degli Ausi is in fact a karst resurgence that develops and is fed by a series of sinkholes located in the overhanging Colle Fornaro.
The access to the cave is characterized by a convenient entrance from which, except in summer, a beautiful waterfall flows; A few meters after the entrance, the cave divides into two branches with different characteristics.
The branch on the right in summer (when there is no flow of water) is crossed by deep pools of crystal clear water, up to one meter high; Here the cave has a "gorge" shape with numerous meanders, while the walls and ceiling are covered with splendid concretions of countless shapes.
The left branch is "drier", the flow is scarce, often absent, but even here the bottom is scattered with basins of various depths.
This branch has always been used by many species of bats as a place of summer shelter that gather in numerous colonies attached to the ceiling.
The temperatures inside the cave are constant, pleasant, and allow exploration in all seasons, obviously adequately equipped.
In addition to bats, there are many animals present in this cave: from the characteristic Dolicopota, an insect very similar to the cricket adapted to underground life, to fish such as the Chub and the unusual crayfish.
At the end of the visit to the cave it is possible to take a bath in the nearby Amaseno river.
