A single passage ends at a mud and calcite choke.

Pottery and a bone instrument were found in the cave, and a group of schematic-abstract paintings have been located in the interior of the cave. These are sketched and described in El Arte Esquemático-Abstracto de Matienzo y sus alrededores (Smith Peter, 1998b). and further discussed in Muñoz Emilio et al, 1995. The cave contains a level with oyster shells.
The developing Acanto web site (by the Federación de Asociaciones para la defensa del Patrimonio Cultural y Natural de Cantabria) has a section on Arte Rupestre esquemático-abstracto. Reference Ruiz Cobo Jesús and Muñoz Fernández Emilio et al, 2009 summarises the finds in the cave in the context of other caves in the Asón region.
