Found this too...the reference I used for the backdrop of the sketch below. We walked across the stone bridge and then onto ledges which led into the various caves. One cave in particular was very dirty, very dark on a deep inside wall with what looked like soot. We walked closer to inspect and the entire wall moved...as the tiny bugs covering the entire wall were agitated by our movements and shimmered and moved like a real life Swarm. Wonder how many geekheads know which villain I am talking about...
Anyway, we hightailed it out of that one. Other grottos were used for various functions, some religious, over the centuries. At one point, one under a church was filled from floor to ceiling with skeletons.
