Genga - Frasassi Caves


The Karstic underground Frasassi Caves are located inside the Regional Natural Park of Gola Rossa and Frasassi, in the Genga municipality. Here natural sculptures can be admired, consisting of calcareous stratifications built by water and rocks for 190 million years. The caves are a natural sequence of stalactites and stalagmites, and of crystal water ponds and pits: a fairy tale location for weddings and events to be celebrated within a fascinating, wonderful, unique frame.
