We were fascinated by our visit earlier today. Great place for photographs. Easy parking, free entry which is an added bonus. Fantastic views, well worth spending an hour or so contemplating the legend ans the wonderment of the more recent excavations. If you have a couple of hours to spare in Tangier, make a point of visiting, you won't be... More

Visited on a windy day. It is a cave. Can be missed if not visiting Cap Spartel. Maybe more an attraction for kids and their imagination.

We had a great stay at this place because checking the cave out was very engrossing, seeing how the light played with the dark shadows of the cave was magical. And then there was the stone coast on which you come extremely close to the waves, which creates a perfect scene for photos and playground for children. Loved it!

This was such a fun stop on our day trip. Our private tour guide took us there and we got a fun version of the history of this spot. The natural beauty and many fun photo spots make it a perfect tourist spot.

Beautiful natural and man made cave. Doesn't take long to see everything. Can be pretty slippery walking down into the cave so take caution.

We made a quick stop here before arriving at Tanger and the rainy afternoon gave the visit a special touch. The face shape of this cave is unique. We also enjoyed the view of the wild waves on the vast shore.

We went there on a private tour on a rainy day and found the place filled with cruisers It is interesting to see but much more rewarding with a guide . There are many offering their services (for a fee) at the entrance of the Cave

Don't expect stalactites and stalagmites and you won't be disappointed. This is a relatively small cave enlarged, as others have mentioned, by the carving out of round millstones which in itself makes it a unique spectacle. Apart from the magic and myth of Hercules, what makes it special, at any time of day as the light is ever changing, is... More

You don't need to spend much time here. It's cool to see, and doesn't cost anything (unless you walk into the other section with the animals). There is free parking on the street in a relatively safe area. We went in, took some pictures, and went about the rest of our day.
