The Cave of Pëllumbas is a karst cave in central Albania, located close to the village of Pëllumbas in Tirana County. It lies about 500 m above the Adriatic, on the slopes of Dajti, a mountain chain that rises to an elevation of 1,613 m. The cave is one of among six karstic caves that exist in Europe.

Overview

The cave has a length of 360 m with a width which can vary between 10–15 m (33–49 ft) and a vertical range of 45 m. Despite its small size it is regarded as one of the country’s most beautiful caves and attracts numerous visitors. The cave is situated within the boundaries of Dajti National Park and has been recognised as a natural monument of national and international importance by the Ministry of Environment. The importance of the complex is due to the remains of ancient human culture which belongs to the Paleolithic. The cave was inhabited by the extinct cave bear, which lived between 10,000 and 400,000 years ago.
