Sightseeing Varadero: Ambrosio Cave
Large Cure De Ambrosio Cave (Cueva de Ambrosio) in Varadero National Park was discovered only in 1961. Of particular interest it is for lovers of history and archeology: many symbolic red-black images and hieroglyphs were found here, including a prehistoric calendar. It is assumed that in the ancient times the cave served the housing for the Indians, and later – a refuge for runaway slaves from plantations.
But those who are not interested in antiquities, it will be interesting to visit this cracked underground water in the limestone rock. Its length reaches three hundred meters, and consists of a cave of five connected with each other with several inputs. In some of them, the arch partly collapsed, and the day light enters the inside through peculiar solar wells. From there to the floor of the cave hanging aerial roots. In other halls reigns perfect darkness, and here live many bats.
Near the cave is located Ambrosio Cave of Muslims, also interesting to visit.
