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

We visited the caves in June this year and certainly were not disappointed. They are beautiful and did not disappoint. There are a lot of steps but they do have handrails and light to show the way. The various formations in the cave are amazing...More

This was our second visit to the caves, the first being 18 years ago. Still fascinating but the climb back out was a lot harder this time as there are lots of stairs.

The caves themselves are incredible. I've seen ancient caves before but nothing on this scale. We didn't take the guided tour but if I go back someday I think I will. The caves are vast and expansive. Give yourself an hour at least to walk...More
