    The truth is that expected me something else and the visit I was disappointed a lot. They are just one hundred metres of tunnel which is not anything other than just that, the tunnel, without any incentive nor interest. In case outside little, the explanation of the same, because the guided, round the hour, time clearly excessive for what little is seen. Visit therefore you becomes super-heavy and very long. I did not see the time of get out of there the truth. It's the dramatized visit directly is another scam. A man dressed in clothes of shopkeeper, speaking accounts phrases about the civil war for a few minutes, I do not believe that you can be so. Anyway, I think that it is a very overrated and that the money that is paid is clearly excessive. I would not recommend it.

    It is very interesting for the historical data giving (although some of the discussed by guide does not seem to be very contrasty). The theatrical character who appears during the visit gives a touch of everyday life of basin during the Civil War. There are also panels with historical data over the Gallery

    I tried a lot of expectations, Korea's famous caves, the cave as natural, not artificial cave to see a long Cave's historical significance was to hear the Spanish Guide for description. 1 time 5 Euro entrance fee and not know the Spanish language I.

  • 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.
  • I loved were the shelters used by the Cuenca in the war, recommend it very well esplicados. I recommend it
