The Cave of the Cotiosa (PO-32) is the main cavity, and the best known by the shepherds in the Jou de la Cotiosa, from where it gets its name.


No description currently available


This cavity was used until a few years ago to ripen cheese inside. The entrance has been modified, reducing its size, so that it can be closed by a non-existent door today. The cavity is completely horizontal, with a slight downward slope. Formed by a single room of just over 50 m of track, and with heights ranging from the little 2 m up to about 10 m. The cavity in its full extent offers no possible continuation.

As a point of interest, it is worth highlighting a higher water supply that appears on one side. This small course runs through the cavity ten meters, to disappear through impenetrable conduit. Almost at the end of the cavity, at a height we will find an upward duct without continuation, to this duct we will arrive by means of an exposed climb of about 6 m.

The Cotinosa Cave (PO-32) offers results of 53 m of development, and a depth of -7 m.
