The Frasassi Caves in Frasassi (at 25 km.)
Let's imagine a work of hundreds of millions of years, where the water dissolving small amounts of limestone, over a drip of millenniums, creates deposits by more strange and fantastic.
Think of a "complex underground" of about 30km. laid out on 8 different geological levels: these are the Frasassi Caves, one of the most fascinating underground paths of the world.
