The birth of a speleological group in Val Tanaro is justified by the great importance of karst phenomena in this area which has a large recurrence of limestone residues, a factor that unites it to the Trieste Karst and the Alps Apuane.
Over six hundred natural cavities can be found enclosed between the various reliefs found in the area: the caves are made up of deep vertical abysses in the Val d'Inferno, on Monte Armetta and on Bric Conoia, in particular. p >
The relief of Marguareis-Mongioie is the one that most of all proves to be rich in underground systems including the Piaggia Bella complex, one of the most interesting objects of study, with 14 entrances for an internal development of about 39 kilometers and 950 meters deep.
The Speleo Club Tanaro has a long history of successes, explorations and important collaborations with the speleological groups of the neighboring regions.
We have made countless discoveries but we are constantly looking for new members so that our passion becomes yours too.
