Cuevas dels Hams, Porto Cristo

1.6
#1 of 11 in Things to do in Porto Cristo
On a guided tour of the subterranean caves of Cuevas dels Hams, discovered in 1905, admire an impressive array of stalagmites, stalactites, and underwater lakes. 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."

  • The caves are cute, but nothing spectacular for those who have already visited caves in Italy, but the heaviest part in my opinion is the price 20 euros for a ride with two projections/documentary. Would not stay there again

  • If the site looks welcoming, we are quickly disappointed by the visit. Three video projections in the cave. We have the impression that we're playing the watch. We have already visited much better. The passage of the boat is rather very breakfast. For the price, it is close to the tourist flight, you lose your turn.

  • Apart from the €21 of ticket that I am crazy for an hour's visit, the first play video on Genesis shortly have to do with the natural environment of the caves, looks more like a video to "fill" a few minutes x stay there. beautiful colors of lights, but probably with neutral lights are most appreciated the naturalness of the final grotte...il with the Venetian boat in the underground lake found just trash.chi visited Frasassi or similar will find these caves lot " normal ".
