Grofova Jama (Grof's cave) is situated in the immediate vicinity of Spodnja Brestovica, below the peak of Grmada Hill. This is a fossil cave which is on a slope and has five entrances. The cave is 350 metres long and 50 metres deep. The cave got its name after Grofovi Hribi (Grof’s hills), which were owned by the Counts of Duino/Devin. The cave was set up as a shelter for Austro-Hungarian soldiers. Four purpose-built trenches were dug and the upper part of the cave was transformed into nine platforms for bunk beds. This part has lighting and is open to visitors. On the bottom, the trench expands into a precipice which leads down to the lower chamber. In the surrounding area are the remains of many prehistoric hill forts, trenches and underground chambers (the part to the cave is run past the succursal church of St. Anastasia or from the field path in Dolnja Brestovica).
