    Refreshing visit conducted by an original and friendly guide. See especially the third cave!

    Visit and guide for a reasonable price. It is a time when it rains, which is not uncommon.

    very beautiful caves. The guide is Spanish, but speaks very good french, however it is better be ready for him because in the caves the sound carries including the conversations of those who are not interested in what the guide has to say. A damper on the visit is the speed with which the guide passes in some rooms in which is expected to return while the output is actually on the other end. One of the officials has indicated that time is running out for visits because there are a lot of people. But there are some slots at certain times of the week for 2 h of visits with permission to take pictures. Very friendly staff.

    Beautiful site. Visit interesting and informative for all ages with our friendly Spanish guide. Sufficient detail to an uninformed public. Very nice visit! Family. Attention for people with difficulties to move. No possible photos except on Wednesday morning. To do.

    Clear explanations, but want to take too many people we're missing things to see. I also find it a bit short in time I you recall that c is 10.80 euros for adults. So to see 4 pieces with explanations without really understanding the how and why c is a bit expensive. The staff is reviewing a smile c is not rocket science but conversely the guide is great even otherwise send a little the rehashed it remains discreet. To do in times of rain at the beginning of the holidays when this region don't still stung you. Not d access stroller attention to the little ones who freak out in the dark and equip you to good shoes.

    We recommend the prehistory of Sunday morning tour, which only lucky 300 per year can participate in. The guide, which is exciting, draws us into 2 levels of this remarkable cave, both by rock art, furniture handicrafts and geological concretions that are there. A visit which changes our view on the culture of early humans in Europe, not to be missed if you do tourism in the basque country.

    An exciting tour in two times. The first cave, at the entry level, plunges us into a place of life and passage, taken care of-30 to-10 000 years. The second cave, which can be reached by 90 steps, below the first, delights the visitor by its draperies and limestone concrėtions. Workplaces are in a State of rare preservation, and offer even the spectacle of rock engravings, which crossed the millennia, intact, to us. And, nothing spoil, the guide is exciting and available to swap with the curious visitor. The small museum is very interesting, even if he does only copies. Practice notes: toilets are available at the parking downstairs, and upstairs at the entrance of the cave. The visit (1 h 45 min) is not athletic, but it is necessary to take good shoes.

    Two caves in one. A great place for a family walk. Guide super enthusiastic, not to mention a friendly welcome. Partly shaded parking and corner picnic.
