The cave consists of five caverns and the passages that connect them, with a total length of 60 m. The name Queen’s cave is connected to the Illyrian Queen Teuta who ruled in the 3rd-2nd centuries BC. Archaeological excavation took place in the cave on two occasions, but it has never been excavated completely. The results show that the cave was temporarily inhabited during the late Stone Age ( Neolithic), and much more frequently during the Bronze age, particularly in the early phases.
