Monfiorenzo quarry, Cave of Fantasy

This old quarry is a fine example of lime sedimentation (Karst phenomenon) over more than 130 million years in the formation of the earth’s crust.

This sedimentation took place through strong sea currents of alga mixed with limestone silt. Between the layers horizontal and vertical grooves with different types of dolomite and inclusions are visible with genetic and diagenetic characteristics.

Since 1986 this quarry is due to its scientific value, a natural monument.
