  • They recommended it in the tourist office and the truth is that you did not disappoint us. The visit was theatrical and liked the children very much. Interesting and highly recommended.

  • History under the ground, shelter for the population in full Civil War shelter. The Conchi, very professional guide, tells the story of basin with great knowledge, also recreates helped real form of a player the story of the time of war, highly recommended the dramatized visit. A great discovery.

  • An interesting visit, did the theatrical, lasts little action but far enough to get the idea of how hard that was the so-recent time. On the other hand guide Anna, explained it wonderfully

  • 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.
  • Ask the dramatized visit, was great! Fun, entertaining and very informative! He has a little piece of history quite hard but quite intereseante.

  • Entries in the Turist Info from the plaza mayor, just behind the arches of the town hall can be booked for the visit. I recommend you do the dramatized visit, it's been the most entertaining visit. The tunnel is not very long, but during the visit described its construction, involvement in the civil war, etc. Also include panels and explanations about other underground areas of watershed that are in development. It costs € 3 guided tour and the theatrical€ 5.
