Borgio Verezzi Caves
The still, transparent waters of the lakes form one of the biggest tourist attractions at the Borgio Verezzi Caves which wind for about 800 metres inside large halls, between enormous blocks fallen from the vault long ago. Rich with concretions of every type: from thin, almost transparent tubes, to layers as thin as sheets, and grand columns that appear to support the vault through to the eccentric stalactites that challenge the force of gravity, reaching outwards in all directions.
