Get the key from the chocolate shop. Nice place to visit and should only take 10 minutes to look round. Steep hill and steps down but worth it.

A small cave apparently inhabited by St Fillan. A pound to visit you get the key from the cocoa tree which is worth a visit in itself. Nothing much in it to be honest but was interesting. We spent about 10 min there.

Not an organised visitor attraction as such and often missed as it is hidden up a lane between the main thoroughfares. An atmospheric little cave with interesting interpretation.
