I passed the site twice without noticing the small sign on the gate. The "cave" is like a small amphitheatre in a stone wall with a few steps at the back. I suppose the legend is interesting to some. For me, the climb up the well-restored Tower of the Marquis de Villena with views of the New Cathedral and the Convent of San Esteban made the visit worthwhile.

Although the name suggest a cave, in reality it refers to a crypt of a long gone church. This crypt is famous from the legend that here the devil taught 3 men the dark arts. In return, one of the 3 men had to stay forever in the crypt. The knight living in the defensive tower also on the site (well, he didn't really live here) decided to break that promise. As punishment the devil took away his shadow. Not really too bad a punishment! There really isn't much to see in the remains of the crypt, but one has a good view of the defensive medieval tower, which one can also climb. Inside the tower there is little to see, but there are nice views from the top. On the site one can also see some remains of the church that once stood here, and remains of the pre-Roman wall that once stood here. It is free to enter.

This place really gives you a different insight into the Salmantinian and Spanish ancient history. Our guide was passionate about their archeological discoveries, which made the tour very inspiring indeed. Do not go there a hot summer's day though as some of the sights are preserved inside a big greenhouse.

It is a historical location but it doesn't contain much information except for the basic reason why students attended this place a long time ago.
