The Marble Caves, also known as Capillas de Mármol, are located in Patagonia, Chile. They are a natural spectacle that will leave you in awe.
- One of the most isolated natural treasures of the world.
- They are a series of sculpted caves in the General Carrera Lake in the heart of Patagonia.
- Three formations that make up this natural spectacle are The Cathedral, the Chapel and the Cave.
- They can be seen over an area of 300 meters.
- How did they form? By 6.000 + years of waves washing up against calcium carbonate.
- The swirling blue colors of the cavern walls are a reflection of the lake’s azure waters, which change in intensity and hue, depending on water levels and time of year.
- They are accessible only by boat.
- Best time to visit is between September and February, when the ice melts and the color of the water is particularly enchanting turquoise.
- They are one the most beautiful landscapes of southern Chile and one of the favorite destinations for photography lovers.
