Excavations at the Generosa Cavern (also known as “Bear’s Cave”) have brought to light numerous bones of a great variety of mammalian species, including ibex, deer, wolf, brown bear, groundhog and elk. The sediments which held these finds have shown an interval of time ranging from about 50,000 years ago to the present day, also providing traces of one of the oldest human presences in northern Italy.
From Italy: From San Fedel Intelvi (CO) follow the road for Orimento. From Switzerland: From Capolago Station (CH) a cog railway train goes to the hotel-restaurant “Vetta”.
From “Baita Orimento” there is a path which leads to the entrance of the cave in approximately 50 minutes. Or, from the hotel square, follow the signs to a path which will take you to the site in 15 minutes.
