    Making a tour of the province of Ciudad Real decided to pass by this mythical place that already appears in the literary work more important in our country: Don Quixote. We parked in the parking lot opposite the ticket office. It is a guided tour and will shift. When we arrived we were told that our visit would be in 1 hour, so we took the opportunity to go to know Rochafrida Castle (or what's left of it). The visit to the cave takes approximately an hour in which a guide tells you a little bit the origin of the cave, the use that has been throughout history and its appearance in the novel by Cervantes. The guide that we accompany explained to us perfectly all the vicissitudes that surround this place in a pleasant and enjoyable way. The cave itself is quite small and very shallow. I have viewed many caves in Spain and outside and the truth is that this is the least I liked. It only saves the small Brook underground and the history that is. A little history: supuestamente here Don Quixote suffered a moment of Enchantment after falling down a rope. In this sunoe the Hidalgo saw castles, meadows and Montesinos in person. "And in saying this approached the sima, was not possible to SAG or make room for the entry, if it was not to force of arms or stabbed to death, and, as well, putting a hand to the sword began to break down and cut those weeds that were, at the mouth of the cave by whose noise and DIN left for her endless huge crows and rooks" so thick and so much haste, that gave with don Quixote in the ground; and if he was as ominous as a Catholic Christian, I had it bad sign and enclose all such augury."

    We were in the lagoons of Ruidera, and we went to see them. Not suitable for elderly or little agile. Paqui, guide, explained with enthusiasm the dreams of Don Quixote in its passage through the caves in one of the chapters of the work of Miguel de Cervantes. The explanation and bats, give some mystery and charm to the caves.

    Culture of Don Quixote of la mancha is inexcusable guides you inserted into the fantasy world that Cervantes saw

  • An impressive cave, has nothing to do with others that we have seen. Dark, with tenants (bats, will see them hanging from the walls or taking a walk through the cave), and with a cervantine story that left us all impressed. It has to do with guided tour, they are €5, but it is worth.

  • Place quoted in Don Quixote curious to see if it is in the area of the lagoons of Ruidera.

  • We went for her relationship with Don Quixote. It is not exactly a theatrical visit but our guide was lovely and the visit was very instructive and fun. Children liked to see about the bats.
