We were on a tour bus to the caves. I am almost speechless about the grandeur of this phenomenon ! There are many well-lit stairs to navigate, but the sights make it more than worthwhile. A stalactite coming down 32 meters from the ceiling !...More

Well worth the effort. Impressive caves, much bigger and better than ones we've visited before. Nice respite from the heat on a very hot day too.

Really worth a visit, a grand cave with an exiting history. Here people lived and painted the walls 20 000 years ago. I remember Cuevas del drach as grander, but this is also a truly beautiful cave.

I live in an area famous for caverns and caves but this was another level. Absolutely incredible. The audio tour was available in all languages and the cave contains one of the oldest cave paintings ever. Definitely worth a visit

We were sceptical about whether we could go into the caves with such a young baby (7 months) but the FAQ’s on the website dealt with this concern directly and encouraged us to go ahead. Very glad we did. Great experience. We had to delay...More

These caves were a real surprise. Cavernous and amazing formations all around. Good path through the caves suitable for all ages. No flash photography allowed inside. Well signposted and easy to find. I wouldn't walk from Nerja Town. While the distance is not too long...More

I would say no. Lots of steps, a little slippery in places and limited light.
