An amazing cave with an underground river and beautiful mineral formations. You travel about 1,5h in a metal boat with a group of people. The guide was very funny and friendly. Quite uncommon and it costs 11,40.

Even getting there by 1030, parking was a nightmare and the queue was an hour long, and then once we got served were given a time of 1.30pm for our tour. However this inauspicious start was softened by a good simple restaurant on site who...More

We visited the caves in July on a miserable day as something to do. They're not expensive at 10.80 Euro's for an adult. Groups are of 12 - and we did not have an English speaking guide. The entrance to the cave is a few...More
