This network of caves is located in the Upper Rock Nature Reserve 1000 feet above sea level that was created by rainwater slowly seeping in through the limestone and dissolving the rock. This cave is ancient, the Neanderthals and early man both lived in the caves at some point. The largest chamber of the cave is now an auditorium that can seat a 100 comfortably. Makes for quite a surreal concert venue!
