A geomorphological study performed by several field surveys and a morphometric analysis of the digital terrain model (DTM) and 3D cave models, allowed formulation of a first evolutionary framework of the karst system. The DTM was extracted from maps and aerial photographs in order to find different generations of ‘relict’ landforms, through the morphometric analysis of topographic surface and karst landforms. This paper presents a preliminary evolutionary model of the karst as a whole, as well as a first reconstruction of the complex relationships between speleogenesis, tectonics and sea level fluctuations
