What was this place before it became the Villa Amphitheatre?

It was an abandoned quarry that had a concrete plant that produced too much pollution for the people that live around it and seriously damaged the environment. It wasn’t useful land.

Who made the Caverns or were they already there?

The caverns were Benito Dessard’s children’ idea. They saw their friend Ruben Dario Monslave, a Columbian artist, make a high relief on the wall and told their father “wouldn’t it be cool if one could go inside a mountain and hide behind a work in progress” From this idea, Benito created the Caverns of Virilla.
