TIERRAS is a Montecarlo simulation program based on the well known AIRES air shower simulations system designed to propagate high energy particle cascades underground, providing a tool to study particles arriving underground from a primary cosmic ray on the atmosphere or to initiate cascades directly underground and propagate them, exiting into the atmosphere if necessary. In this presentation we show a cross-check of its results against experimental data and the first results of full underground shower simulations, as an example of the package capabilities.
