Artistic lighting adds to the mysterious atmosphere of this underground world. Look for the fish hook–shaped formations to which the caves owe their name, as "hams" means "hooks" in Spanish. Your tour ends at the biggest of all the lakes, where you listen to classical music played from an animatronic gondola. After all, this lake is called the "Sea of Venice."

  • A great thing to do on Mallorca when the beaches are getting too hot! Very beautiful caves with some nice videos about how they were found. Overall nice experience!
  • Terrible. So expensive for what little you get. Don't be fooled by the advertising and the entrance. It's just two small caves and some lights. Save your money and go to the Caved of Drach down the road. So much better.
  • Complete rip-off. Ticket well overpriced for what this place got to offer. First cave second projector just showing you unimportant video footage just to strech the time so you will not finish too soon. You walk with the guide so you can't go on your own. Walking speed is unnaturaly slow. Like you have got this feeling they are streching 10 min tour into 45 min. For small place like that you've got at lease three projectors which two of them are unnecessary. Closer to the exit in the cave with lake you need to stop for another 5-7min just to watch some musical and a guy on the boat. Guys really ???!!! If people would like to watch the musical they would go to the opera !!! If you go to caves you would like to watch bloody caves. Few the possitive things ... nice location, stalagmites and stalactites were nice, lake was nice, a bit of history was good, didn't try the food but the price were cheap and parking was for free. But if you spend 84€ just to park the car for free for an hour it probably makes the most expensive car park in the world. Ouuu I forgot ... you've got the postcard and free shot of "sangria" included in the price on every ticket. Very very very dissapointing.
  • Rubbish. Did not get to go in the boats and the 2nd projector was a waste of time it was just there to justify the rip off price to get in. Then you get a glass of watered down sangria when you leave
  • Tickets are expensive, with regard to what you have taught. To top it off a video of the Big Bang that I don't know that it is beside the point they have put in a cave. Another video of the discoverer of the cave and at the end to see the entire route, another music video with images. Come on, to pay 21 euros per ticket to watch videos, it seems a scam. Nothing we didn't. Not explain much, all via the PA system in multiple languages, and fairly simple... There is a "Lady-in-waiting" person, because explain, explain... nothing at all, just so you don't miss
