Photographer's Note

The grotto was discovered by Mr. Miguel Lobato Apple tree, of accidental way. During the season of rain (jul-dic) a stream maintained in perfect movement the machinery of the factory of brandy of its property; the problem was the season of drought, during which the level of the water lowered considerably. When remaining practically without water, he decided to look for the source. It followed the channel of the stream and found the tunnel by which it left the water the interior of the mount, and that one was its first obstacle because it was a very close passage. It was in charge to extend it and advanced slowly, until he was with a second obstacle: a cascade of seven meters of height. It managed to raise the cascade and it continued advancing: the 19 of March of 1919 discover the main vault.
