Grotta superiore dei Dossi (106 Pi/Cn)
(Dossi Higher Cave)

(difference in level -10m ?, development 580m, altitude of the entrance 626 m above the sea level)

This cave opens in the territory of the Villanova commune at an altitude of about 620 m above the sea level. The local traditions say that it is in communication with the S. Lucia Cave. This connection don't exists also if probably they are two stumps of a same old hypogean system. Discovered at the end of the eighteenth century, it has been open to the turists at the beginning of the next century; after it has been furnished with an electric illumination system. The series of tunnels that surround the central hall develops without great differences in level and possibilities of continuations for more than 500 metres.
