The entrance leads down over gour pools to a well decorated, 30m long chamber beyond an ancient wall. The villagers believe that the pools of this cave contain salt water.
At Easter 2006, a dig was started at the rear of the cave, probably where "sumidero" is marked on the 1964 survey. During Easter 2007 use was made of a pump to remove water before the dig was restarted. Progress is now starting to descend as the roof lowers.
At Easter 2009, after 3 days of digging, enthusiasm dropped as the excavators were not sure where to dig.
