(4/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Explore Coves de Sant Josep, the longest navigable underground river in Europe. Enter into the depths of the earth on a small boat, and view the natural formations as you duck your head under rocks and enjoy the soft music and lighting in the cave. You'll have the chance to explore on foot as well before heading back to the entrance. Portable recordings are available in English to explain what you are seeing. There are also cafes and small shops near the entrance. This attraction is not for the claustrophobic, as you will be going through small, dark areas, sometimes with low ceilings.

  • Very nice journey through the depths of the mountain. Almost the entire boat, less a piece which is made walking is made. Is very nice of see all it cave and them passages, but in my opinion, is too "humanized", is note too the hand of the man, us told the boatman, that had that dynamite some sectors for make them more large for them boats, got eject to all them bats that vivian inside, by too much pollution human,... is clear that was necessary for to make it route , but still... not mola. He told us, that there is an area that is only accessible to divers, since that won't it change because it could affect the rest of the cave, and we hope to continue as well. Warning: not suitable for claustrofobicos. I have a little of claustrophobia, that normally can control, but during the ride to foot, it pass slightly wrong, the air is more dense and costs breathing, for it people that it passes badly in spaces small... is passes quite badly, the tour in barca, although them passages are very narrow, that have that go ducking the head all the while by them rocks so low moves well, you're more cool water and more entertaining, and it is not noticed much, but stub walk... goes wrong, so if you lot phobia, think about it well. For those who dare also, it is nice to see. In summer they make inside acoustic concerts.

  • Yesterday we were in les coves de sant josep, the truth that was precious, for 10 euros you can enjoy landscape that offers for a few 40 min approx. a tour boat, where the guide explains you the history of the caves, and a stretch do you walk, although people will rush you can entertain a bit in looking and touching. What I didn't like, is that they do not allow you any photos, you only offer the option of purchasing the photo that they make you at the beginning, with a lot of people unknown in the boat, another aspect that we didn't was that one of the safety of the door was pretty sharp directing people to say things. Aside from that, I recommend go, is beautiful and a very quiet ride.
