The resurgence for Cueva del Agua (059). A roomy dive which is no deeper than 10m. According to Gutiérrez (E1) there is a stalactite 2m under water.

To the south of the main pool, in an alcove, there is a draughting cave with an upwards thrutch to a possible dig. This may be the archaeological site below.

Ruiz Cobo Jesús et al, 2008, p221 mentions a gallery to the left of the resurging river which goes in 12m. This has a presumed Upper Palaeolithic level with flints and semi-fossilised bone splinters.

Reference Smith P et al, 2015 has a summary of the archaeological work carried out within 2004 - 2016.
