  • Interesting history and amazing anecdotes of stupid people who painted on top of the paintings and plucked off stalactites while they destroyed everything so the next generation can not see or 10 meters of cave, where there is not nothing. Give imagination to what lies behind a mountain of fossilized oysters, some scaffolding and a "horn" of a so-called deer. While my parents explained that marched through the cave until it touches the 'egg' we sat in chairs and see a 3D video of the current caves style the game Doom 3, but without guns and monsters. Very good guide, very well explained. We knew that we were going, but I hope that in the future reduced visits to the caves, at the moment, can be I do not recommend it. You can get closer to the entrance and read a book from the caves.

  • Even if the weather wasn't with us, we had a lovely morning. Our guides were very friendly. We are many to learn basque, and so they are adapted to our level. We began by seeing a documentary in 3D, which makes us see the vastness of the cave. As she teaches us many things. Then we walked a bit through a beautiful forest until you reach the entrance of the cave. We were able to be entered and see the beauty of the place. We had detailed and clear explanations. Thank you for this beautiful discovery.

  • Went knowing that not be visited to cave but thought that the recreation could deserve the penalty. Visit us has been a little strange on the one hand staff who teaches it is very professional and has a very informative way all what civilization concerning what is seen from the cave is very low and has virtually no interest. The recreation from my point of view is very accomplished what is relation to the cave itself but is part of the paintings very little accomplished. In summary if what you are interested in the paintings so you can see better in a book or on the Internet
