  • Historic site, very interesting. But it is in the running state, the cave itself is closed. Around a lot of garbage, and could make an excellent landmark. Don't understand the local population, which messes everywhere: in historic sites, beaches, and just on the streets ...

  • Closed due to dilapidated cave. This scaffolding. In short: nothing to do and waste of time. Besides, it's good!

  • The cave of Cervantes is a high place of common history as well for the Algerians for the Spanish. This site carries the footprints of the illustrious Miguel Cervantes, father of the universal novel DON QUIXOTE DE LA MANCHA.
