The cave which was found in 1882 on the western side of the Tamás Hill and was opened to the public in 1934 is located on the outskirts of the town. The spectacular middle Triassic limestone layers, displaced from their horizontal formation by the impact of mountain-forming forces, hide this strictly protected cave, created by erosion of the limestone by warm waters gushing up from the deep. The dissolving process left cauldron shaped forms and occasionally still visible pea-stones as a reminder of the circumstances surrounding the formation of the cave.

The area of the Bakony–Balaton Geopark includes this visitor centre and its surrounding as well.
