  • An interesting although perhaps too brief of an experience (hence only four stars) as access to the claimed "subterranean labyrinth" isn't available to visitors but is limited to a guided tour of only a hundred meters or so. The tunnel was only opened to tourists in 2010 but according to our guide efforts are underway to open more of the tunnel network. The tour of the tunnel is led by a friendly local guide with an extensive knowledge of the history of the tunnels. The tour is presently only provided in Spanish and without a modicum of understanding it would be difficult to gain much of an appreciation of the site's features and significance. Although you are required to don hard hats, passage through the tunnel is on a well constructed path with ample lighting making for easy walking. The tunnel is not large so those that find small places uncomfortable might want to stroll the streets of Cuenca instead. Tours are limited in size and only one or two are given each day. The schedule varies according to the day of the week. It is best to make reservations early in the day. Book a spot at the city's tourist information center in the old town for a place later in the day. Entrance to the tunnel is not at the tourist office, but directions are provided when tickets are purchased. A small sign marks the plain steel door entrance in a rock wall just across the street from 87 Calle Alfonso VIII. Allow yourself a little bit of extra time to find the slightly obscure entrance before the scheduled starting time of the tour. Once everyone is inside the tour starts and the door is locked.
  • Very interesting visit to complete your visit to Cuenca! The tunnels are part of the history of basin and all what you explain is very interesting. Highly recommended.

  • The visit is not wrong, they tell you a little story and worth the dramatized by the price difference. It is interesting, but only if the time which you have to visit basin allows you without giving up other many visits and activities that you can do in the city.

  • €5 per be theatrical without option that isn't it. Over removed the session from 6 pm to be parties (which is when most people there are) there is no discount for unemployed or large family, students or disabled. A shame not worth inside. Don't go

  • Good visit. Choose with theatrical. It is worth. Buy before at the tourist office.
