The Big Ice Cave at Paradana

The Big Ice Cave at Paradana is known worldwide due to the classical description (locus classicus) of the inversion of the vegetation belts in its western part. The cave is 385 m deep and 1550 m long.
In the Ice Cave ice blocks 10 to 40 kg in weight used to be cut. They were carried up to the surface in baskets and transported to Gorizia or Trieste by night. From there the ice was sold to the ships.
In the earlier days the ice was exported even to Egypt. Paradana is protected as a Natural Reserve, is not open to visitors. It is possible to reach just the entrance of the cave.
