Caves of Oliero Natural Park

Valbrenta

Located in the Brenta valley, in the municipality of Valbrenta, the Oliero springs represent the main exit of the Sette Comuni plateau karst system. The caves currently open for the visit are four: two at ground level, from which the Oliero river springs out and the two above called “covoli”, today dry wrecks of karst from past ages. One of the two caves from which the river Oliero flows, called 'Covol dei Siori' or 'Grotta Parolini', takes its name from the famous naturalist Alberto Parolini who made it accessible since 1832. The visit to this extraordinary cave is possible by boat to arrive inside the mountain, then on foot to the Sala della Colata where it is possible to admire ancient and spectacular stalactites and stalagmites.
