Great first visit

We had a taxi tour - but I believe the entrance was free as we didn't see any money change hands. It's a walk through and the last times we had been in Tangier it had been closed... read more

15 minutes from Tangier only. It's on the water at the end of the only road leading to Cap Spartel. If you're driving yourself there is parking just to the right of the site entrance. 10DH can cover that.

We stopped at the Hercules cave on our private tour and it's very beautiful and very nice to see the difference of man made and the archeological part. The revitalization is very nice.

This a nice short trip and the caves are fascinating. Grotto view is breathtaking. View of ocean from large courtyard before you enter the is nice. This is one of the the two herculean caves the other one being in Gibralter. Mythical history to the place Definitely worth a short visits
