A MUSEUM IN THE DEPTHS OF THE EARTH

Spain has a smaller scale replica of the Tower of Pisa. The original took 177 years to build, but its Spanish version took a million years and so maybe we should say that Pisa has a version of the Valporquero Tower. The author of this small work of art is nothing but water, which has produced other curious shapes such as a reproduction of La Piedad and a ghost. All of these lie in a special underground museum, the Valporquero cave.

In Vegacervera in the region of León there is a small village called Valporquero de Torío. A few dozen houses line the road in no particular order. There is nothing that makes you think that we are before one of the most important natural phenomena in Spain. Maybe the correct adverb wouldn’t be ‘before’ but rather ‘on’. Under our feet, in the heart of the mountains of León, there is a path full of vaults, gulleys, stalactites and stalagmites. The icy, crystal clear waters that run through it have shaped the rocks as if they were plasticine and has formed a unique geological phenomenon that goes on for more than a kilometre. This route is divided into seven different halls that grow in complexity as we go further into the depths of the Earth. The cave keeps its greatest treasures deepest down and the last section is a narrow gully which precedes the hall of marvels, a lake crowned by hundreds of stalactites of different shapes and colours. This profusion of figures and tones is the master touch in Valporquero, a true underground museum devoted to a single artist, water.
