  • Millions of years of stories. What is amazing is that she has been inhabited as long by different civilizations. It must stop there you won't regret your visit. The height of some parts and patterns sculpted by water time are impressive with each step. Our guide was very generous explanations and answered the questions of all. Think to bring a sweater, despite a very sunny day, it's very cold inside.

  • Very beautiful caves with huge concretions. Visit focused on the history of the site because place occupied by the men for a long time. The geological aspect of the place is less put forward. A lot of people in October (Thanksgiving holiday) then in the summer... Forbidden pictures (private location)

  • Historical monument emblematic site of prehistoric times since 1953. Course of 600 m, the two caves offer different shows. Isturitz is decorated with cave paintings that tells the daily life and Oxocelhaya is a kind of sanctuary, true mineral Cathedral made of age-old concretions. Neanderthal was the first man to inhabit these caves then it was Cro-Magnon. Superb visit for lovers of nature and history.

  • Visit of a double cave with some inhabited by the Neanderthal and the other beautifully adorned by the calcareous concretions. The explanations are clear and varied but little detailed. Visit to do if you're in the neighborhood and you have the time

  • Nice caves accessible to all. We were with children 5 and 2 years old. Of course they were no more captive, but it went very well. The guide does the job however the home unions is a bit cold. In the cave is very practicable no need to come team contrary to what I read.

  • Two caves to visit. They are not very large but made interesting for the instructions in the guide. Part parietal art is ultimately little developed but well presented. beautiful concretions. Things to do for children
