Vela Spila is an impressive cave ruin which was once a huge cave, but has now collapsed to form a sort of natural amphitheatre. Vertical walls and the remainders of the roof make this a shady place with rays of sunlight. The amount of light is high enough to allow the growth of plants, there is even a huge tree growing in the middle of the cave. This cave is definitely a mysterious and mystic place.
