The Association La Venta is a research group that organizes and runs various geographical exploration projects with particular attention to the underground world. Such projects are carried out using a multi-disciplinary approach, developing new ideas and using new research and dissemination strategies.
To achieve this goal, La Venta uses human resources and techniques acquired over twenty years of research carried out in extraordinary environments such as rain forests, depths of glaciers, remote mountains and endless underground labyrinths.

In the House of the Gods - Support a documentary film about the mysterious caves of the Tepuis Lost World

La Casa degli DeiAncient caves, billion-year-old secrets
Caves are among the last uncharted places on Earth. The caves of the tepuis — the tabletop mountains on the border of Venezuela and Brazil — have been isolated for hundreds of millions of years. Exploring these caves is like stepping back in time to discover clues about Earth’s deep past.
Since 2009, La Venta Geographic Exploration team has led five expeditions into the tepui massifs. We discovered tens of kilometers of underground passages, carved in quartz, hiding mysterious forms of life, new minerals for science, and incredible landscapes. Because of these efforts, local indigenous “Pemon” communities consider these caves the House of the Gods: sacred places where living creatures and crystals are fused in a unique organism.
