Itinerary Details

See how a special crew of miners, expert in explosives and rock climbing was assembled. They worked in shifts, day and night, to complete the excavations in record time. Despite safety measures being practically ignored to speed up work, no casualties were reported in the building phase.

Because the tunnel was without angles or trenches, the usual technique for dynamite drilling was impossible (the crew used those angles and trenches as shelter while blowing up charges just a few meters away). Instead, small cavities were excavated at regular distances to allow the workers to gain cover after igniting explosives. They are still visible in the guided tour. 

Going inland, you'll meet some farmers on the way. Passing through this street, arrive to the beautiful Is Zuddas caves in which time seems to have stopped. Stalactites, stalagmites and aragonite are the main attractions that nature can offer.

Relax and enjoy at...
