Spelaeology 

For geology enthusiasts a visit to the "La Fosca" caves is recommended, both in the submerged cave as well as in the beauty of the surrounding area of "Col della Remita" and "Col del Bùio".

The cave opens into Principal Dolomitic rock which is a sedimentary rock from the Triassic period made up of pale dolomitic limestone, but which is interestingly in a point close to where the sedimentary rock meets with the plutonic granite of Cima d’Asta.

This unusual geological structure gives the opportunity of observing three completely different types of rock:(Principal Dolomitic Rock) Sedimentary
Metamorphic
(Plutonic granite of Cima d’Asta) Magmatic
