  • It is one of the largest and most beautiful caves that I have visited. I did the tour called long and lasts about 90 minutes. They stop to take pictures without flash, to which we like the picture we can enjoy a big way. Visit essential.

  • Excellent cave karstic, formed by the water. Wonderful landscape in the eyes, with a multitude of whimsical formations of calcite, stalactites, stalagmites and their groupings. The visit is guided compulsorily to conserve the cave. The normal visit lasts around an hour and the groups are too numerous. Moisture and cold notes, have to go warm with technical clothing and recommend protection of the throat. Eye with road access to the village of Valporquero, mountain pass; It's dangerous. Caution.

  • Super cool (literally - bring a sweater!) to do, especially in the summer. Hour long guided tour (the only way in) is €6 and the guide is knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. Cash only!
  • Best Cave I've ever seen. Try the subterranean water path if you want a rest experience
  • Highly recommended. Choose the long route. It is worth. A very exciting journey. Essential outerwear

  • I have visited the cave 3 times, and 3 have been spectacular, guided tour was the first and the last two have been doing espeleobarranquismo. Certainly, I recommend greatly the visit of these caves in all its forms! I leave you some pictures of my latest adventure! By the way, never too old to do this, only desire!
