  • Guided tour cost €5 adults (children free), first you put a video in white wall of about 10 minutes and then they proceed to teach the cave (a spectacular volcanic tube). Only in English and Portuguese, but our guide, called Tarsus was understood quite well and we spoke in Spanish at all times. A kind of volcanic geology that must not be missed if you visit the island.

  • They speak to us of a cave of 200 m long, is expected to walk a little. Well, the only time when we walk it's down the stairs (about 70 m), then we land between two large concrete tunnels (50 m) and the inside of each tunnel we see the cave (there are only 60 m away from the 200 m). Finally they explain well as it takes the difference between the limestone caves and tunnels of lava, how it was formed... do not hesitate to take the time to answer questions. Only downside is it is in Portuguese or English (but a good English where words aren't Muse ☺). Visits specific 10 h 30 11 h 30 14 h 30 15 h 30 and 16 h 30. If we never did cave volcanic, well interesting, especially in bad weather. Otherwise go for a hike.
