  • When you walk into a cave in which you see paintings that saw in your textbooks are aware that is not a matter of taste, simply you can not miss it. It can also be with young children and explanations make you delve into prehistory. Groups of seven and little light, is simply spectacular

  • What says the staff () which receives the input and guidance of the visit, is that the cave is exceptional for the quality, condition and age of the paintings and how close that referred to. And I guess that it is the case. My problem is that to be a "uncultivated functional Speleological and historical issues" surely I am not able to assess properly the visit. It is true that I found it very interesting and informative, but if he had not been staying close by, I do not it would worth me a long trip to visit. It is very inspiring to see the engravings, listen to explanations and thinking about these ancestors that separates us so long that transcends our temporal scale / vital. For my partner, however, the visit of twenty thousand years, so well preserved paintings seemed a luxury. There is little that this heritage is protected much more severely and that his visit and contemplation is much more difficult or impossible. You have to book over the internet, because the quota of visit per shift is very limited; the cave which is visited is a small space. Interest are natural formations, but almost exclusively paintings. The view takes about forty minutes. Summary: for very interested and specialists.

  • The visit to the Covalanas is simply spectacular. Already starting with the walk to the cave where you can enjoy a wonderful view. The cave is of small size and visit is performed with lanterns in groups of 7 people (so it is essential to book). The quality and conservation of the paintings is splendid, highlighting the 18 does, a magnificent horse, and an auroch presenting a stylistic unity (technique of stippling) chromatic and chronological. A unique in the Cantabrian parietal art. We loved the very professional and friendly guide.
