Fingal’s Cave is a sea cave on the uninhabited island of Staff, one of the Inner Hebrides islands which skirt the western coast of Scotland. The immense arch-roofed cave creates a melodic, haunting echo of waves within its cathedral-like atmosphere; something so impressive Romantic Poets John Keats, William Wordsworth, and Alfred, Lord Tennyson all made journeys here; as well as Her Majestic Queen Victoria. The cave’s Gaelic name is Uamh-Binn, meaning “cave of melody.”

O paraíso de 117 cavernas, formadas quando ácido sulfúrico dissolveu o calcário circundante, encontra-se nas encostas rochosas do Novo México.  Uma vez dentro da caverna vale dedicar algumas horas para maravilhar as estalactites estranhamente iluminadas…
