The Caves

At the present time, it is almost fossilised, except for the deepest galleries, where the dripping still forms stalactites.The cavity known as Can Marçà was discovered by smugglers, who used it for hiding their goods, hoisting them from the sea from an opening located at a height of 8/10 metres. It is still possible o see, today, the red or black paint marks signposting another way out in case of flicht or emergency.

The geological forms are obvious from the wealth of the underground water coures, the cascades and water beds having been fossilised. The contribution of the geologists-speleologists who have participated in the preparation of the cave has been to reproduce what existed in remote times, by artificially recovering the cascades and water courses of those times. Bones and fossils of extinct rodents have been found. These skeletons have been sent to the Natural History Museum to be catalogued and to enrich the prehistoric fauna of our old Mediterranean lands.
