The "Sima de las Cotorras", or Sinkhole of Parrots, is a limestone cavity that measures 160 meters (520 ft) in diameter and 140 meters (460 ft) in depth.

We'll rappel in the circular cavity, where hundreds of parrots sleep. We will see the parrots at dawn, rising up in ascending circles, and returning at sunset in the same way. Near the end the climb, we'll take a small perimeter path inside the cavity so we can see some archaic paintings.
