Gruta de las Maravillas, Aracena

Get adventurous at Gruta de las Maravillas, caves that extend for more than 0.8 km (0.5 mi) below Aracena Castle. The caves are filled with stalactites and stalagmites, as well as pools of water. This site has been used as a location in films, such as “Journey to the Center of the Earth.” You need to be physically able if you plan on exploring underground here, because the ceilings get quite low in some spots and there are many stairs to climb. Hire a guide to accompany you and share interesting details about different areas of the cave.

  • A wonder in the broader sense of the word, a major effort to make the tourist cave, although I think that there is still much more to discover... One pass.

  • He had already visited this place in the past and still equal or better. It is a place that you can't miss if you go through Aracena. Clean and very well preserved. The girl we had guide was great, very nice and open to any questions. Detailed information about the cave explained it with great knowledge. Definitely recommend it for all audiences, with the exception of seniors, for the fact that it is a place where you have to go up and down many stairs and something of agility is needed to be able to walk in there.
