​​Cueva Museo, Purullena

4.6
#16 of 24 in Parks in Province of Granada
An ethnologic museum explaining the history of the area, ​​Cueva Museo includes three cave homes filled with traditional furnishings, cookware, and tools. With a steady temperature throughout the year, these caves provided a comfortable albeit simple living for natives of this area--some locals continue to inhabit these slightly unusual residences. You'll have a chance to see all three museum caves--the last home offers fine views of the entire village and the surrounding area, so stick around until the end of the tour.

    On a trip to the South of Spain, visited the cave. A small museum in one of the caves has organized one family, entrance 2 euro. When cave has a shop selling products made from clay. In the cave floor 3, the temperature in winter and summer of about 19 degrees. It was unusual to see how people live in caves))) go I do not recommend, and passing by the road having to diversify into the cave you can.
