Conturines Cave

Description

The Conturines cave, discovered in 1987, is 200 metres long and located at 2750 metres above sea level. The bones of a previously unknown species of bear - Ursus ladinicus – were found in the cave. It is the highest find in the world. To reach this fascinating place, you have to climb one thousand metres of altitude difference, some of it on steep scree, but the sight is well worth it.
