Overview
More
With a volume of more than 100,000 m3 and a surface covering 9,371 m2, the Tourist galleries represent approximately one-third of the cave. The cave has been used as a habitat, a burial site and for cultural expression. There are remnants testifying to the passage of hunters, gatherers and fishermen from more than 30,000 years ago. The General Visit starts with the screening of a audiovisual presentation in which you will be able to see spectacular details of the cave (10 minutes). Then an audio-guided visit through the different chambers of the Cave, in a pleasant walk of about 45 minutes where you will discover the many secrets the grotto keeps (audio-guided in Spanish, English, German, French, Italian and Russian). When the cave closes its doors, a small group of privileged people can enter the mystery of the underworld to enjoy the magnificence and beauty of the cave, and discover its secrets. You can choose between three modalities of Exclusive Tours

Well worth the visit. Very spaciuos entrance, not an isdue for those who experience claustrophobia. Well lit for entire tour, not as limiting as other caves. Make sure of your bus times on return, or you could be in for a wait.

Well worth a visit! These caves are fascinating. Make sure you wear sturdy shoes and take a camera you can turn the flash off. Parking on site is easy and cheap.
