Muierilor or Muierii Cave is near Baia de Fier, in the southern part of the Parang Mountains, in the Galbenu Valley, at an altitude of 700 meters. The name has been drawn from ancient times, when men were gone to war, women and children had fled to the cave.

It is not known when it was discovered, but it first appeared in an archaeological questionnaire dating back to 1870. The cave has a length of more than 7 km and has four galleries on two levels. Lower level is reservation. In the upper gallery is only 550 meters.
