Visit the huge crystal-covered cave in Pulpí
It is now possible to visit the second largest crystal-covered cave in the world. We're talking about the huge geode of Pulpí, a cave completely filled with quartz and amethyst crystals that can accommodate up to 10 people at a time. In December 1999 the 'geoda de pulpí' or with the official name 'Geoda del Pilar de Jaravía' was found by accident. A group of specialists from Madrid wanted to explore the Mina Rica and came across a space closed by boulders. Once they were able to enter, huge crystals protruding from the bottom, side and top were discovered.
For years, research has been carried out into the natural phenomenon with meter-high crystals and it has been established that it is the second largest geode in the world.
