A description of the experience
This is a video that illustrates stalactites that ring when struck, that are lithophones. They are in Tito Bustillo cave, which features prehistoric decorations. It is part of the Cave of Altamira and Paleolithic Cave Art of Northern Spain world heritage site.
The Tito Bustillo Cave is a prehistoric rock shelter located in the small town of Ribadesella, in the autonomous community of Asturias, Spain. The cave was inhabited by humans (cro-magnon) before the year 10,000 BC. Due to the collapse of the rock, the original entrance to the cave was sealed thousands of years ago, which made it possible for preservation of objects, tools and wall paintings that were discovered in 1968. Based on those objects found in the cave, it is known that there was a significant human presence during the Magdalenian culture of the Upper Palaeolithic, but the cave was probably inhabited before that time.
