Grotte di Nettuno  ALGHERO
We hike down the stone walkway carved out thousands of years ago which bends around the sheer cliffs and eventually enters the cave system.

The lookout from the top is quite breathtaking as you look out into the Mediterranean sea.  The Limestone walls are sheer and hundreds of feet up.

 The ocean waves smash into the walls and into the cave system creating quite the reverberated sound in the cave system.

A couple hundred years ago, they would fire canons at the entrance to make it bigger for boats to pull up and so people could enter the cave system.

Once inside the cave, the waters continued inside and the beautiful formations appears on the ceiling walls and the floor.

A king engraved the cave system years ago which is a relic of the historic past that this cave had its significance to but the back room was the most profound.

 This room was a used as a meeting room for the high class where they would have dinner parties, and watch theater acts as the ambience and reverberation made for some of the best sounding atmosphere of the time.
