Cabrespine has a truly impressive display of crystals and other limestone rock formations including large forest like jaws of stalagmites and stalactites coloured by pale and shining minerals.

It also lives up to its name, this is one of the largest caverns the public can enter it's huge really massive more than five hundred feet high and maybe two hundred feet wide, the text says it's taller than the Eiffel Tower. Part of the complex follows the route of an underground river the sides of which are blue marble.
