Facts and Data
Unesco World heritage since: 1995
Size of heritage: 56,651 ha
- Buffer zone: 86,797 ha
The variety of formations and the fact that they are concentrated in a restricted area means that the 712 caves currently identified make up a typical temperate-zone karstic system. Because they display an extremely rare combination of tropical and glacial climatic effects, they make it possible to study geological history over tens of millions of years.
