Conjunto Santa Rita
Conjunto Santa Rita is a complex of limestone caves located in the municipality of Iraquara, Bahia, Brazil. It is 17,050 m long and the target of traditional pilgrimage. It contains numerous offerings on the altar and inside. The cave has two large parallel galleries joined by a smaller gallery being both associated with a lower slope. About 600 m have been mapped. The highlight of the cave is a spectacular calcite run-off resembling curtains of over 12 m tall, besides beautiful stratigraphic features on the walls. The small and adjacent Gruta Santa Rita II, has also been quickly mapped.
