Is Janas caves ,  280 metres long, of “carsic” origins, shows  features unique of its kind. The cave opens with an entrance rectangular shaped , dipped in a luxuriant forest, it consists of different rooms. The first one is the hall, a wide room  with a slight slope on the floor, graced with huge stalagmites decorated with a vegetal gloss..
After the Hall you can find the most beautiful room called Home of the Janas, with three great stalagmites , that according to an old legend would be the Janas,  the ancient inhabitant of the cave, petrified by God, because they were found guilty  for the murder of an old priest. The walls are decorated with moulds, columns and ornaments, whereas  the ceiling is completely filled with white and peaky  stalactites. The following room is called “Su Mulino” (The Mill), due to the presence of a mould colour ochre , here you can find two stalagmites: the first  reminds a Madonna with a Baby and the second one the Holy Shroud.  To reach the last room it is necessary to go through a large spare  passage called “Su Longu” (The Long) and through “The Bridge”,  a rocky blade that make  visitors bow their  head ; after a short  walk it is possible to reach the room called “la Sala del Guano” full of  bats due to the presence of a little stream water course  , this room is the ideal place for  the fauna of the cave.
