  • We went after visiting the cave of José which disappointed us a little, it seems to me that the interpretation centre shows very good as the houses are cave and its history, I should also mention that the lady who sold us the tickets was very attentive and explained several things of interest it we don't know his name but is thanking its good to do.

  • Highly recommended for people who, like us, no idea of the importance of the caves and life in them. There are more than 3000 in the region. Very good the guide that we played.

  • A pleasant way to get the old style living of a cave dweller in the 1920,s.A short visit but but pleasant after a stroll up to the cave area in the winter synshine.  more »

  • The most famous feature of the town is the cave dwellings in the Barrio de la Cuevas where around half the population live. When I visited the area, I thought that I was in a scene from 'The Lord of the Rings'! It was just like 'The Shire' - with little white chimneys poking out of the ground! The caves are not primitive dwellings, however but are a solution to the fierce heat of the Andalucian summer. The interior of the cave houses are cool in summer and warm in winter and have all the necessities of modern living - it is quite strange seeing television aerials on the little hillocks!
