This spectacular Marble Cathedral is set in the General Carrera lake in Chile’s Patagonia – the second largest freshwater lake in South America. The caves are on the Chilean side of the lake. The Cathedral and the Caves are a unique geological formation featuring a group of caverns, tunnels and pillars created in monoliths of marble and formed by waves over the last 6,000 years. The level of water in the caves is constantly changing, which also makes it look every time a new way. This Caves attract a lot of tourists from the different corners of the globe.
