These are two large cavities with mirrors of fresh water to the bottom, forming what is now called the Well of the Souls, a magical place, and above all, amazing.

The origin of the Well of Souls is explained by the different processes that went underground deposits of gypsum, that the effects of leaks and water tables shaped large caverns to a level below the surface.
