The exceptionally large size of the main underground chamber of the Grotta Gigante, situated near Borgo Grotta Gigante, in the municipality of Sgonico (Trieste), enabled it to enter the Guinness Book of Records as the world's largest show cave in 1995. The cave can be accessed by a downhill tunnel; the flights of steps lead down to the main chamber, which is 98,50 metres high, 76,30 metres wide and 167,60 metres long (total volume 365.000 m3): the cave is crossed by a geodetic pendulum for the study of earth tides.

Is the webcam online?
There are many reasons for why a webcam is offline. It could be momentarily interruptions in communication, service windows, mice chewing on a cord or just about
any reason you might think of. It is very difficult to track these conditions with perfect accuracy.
The online information that you see in the caminfo screen is
information retrieved from the webcam operators. This information is downloaded once every 24 hours and should be seen as an indication only.
"Online?" means that we don't have any information on the webcam's current status.
