Over 100m of phreatic passage with three entrances, rather higher than Cueva Adillos (34), another phreatic remnant. The cave consists of mostly walking-sized tubes.
In places it appears that the original stoney floor has been pushed up on each side, to deepen the centre of the passage for humans or animals.
Some prehistoric potsherds have been found, out-of-context Bronze Age.
A dig in the side of the main route through was found to be too small.
The western entrance is close to site 1887, but is 10m higher.
