Cave art with knowledgeable guide
May 2017 • Family
Highly recommended and very affordable at €3 per person, we toured with a very knowledgeable guide who gave the tour in English for our group. Wear the appropriate clothes for a cave (light jackets and non-skid, closed toed shoes). You will descend pretty far down, so small children and the very out of shape may find themselves a bit winded on the ascent. Our guide did a tremendous job recreating the prehistoric scenes for us and reviewing the details of the cave paintings. You may not be able to get into Altamira anymore, but this was a great alternative.

A very interesting visit
Aug 2016 • Family
In the heart of the Camargo valley, near the village of Escobedo we find one of many caves in Cantabria. This cave is not suitable for very young children or physically disabled persons. Access is via a cobblestone path which descends a couple of hundred metres into the valley where the opening of the cave is found. Small groups of a maximum of 12 or so people are permitted access accompanied by a guide. Not as rich in the number of paintings as Altamira but namely more important because the 25m painting frieze was executed in a with amazing skill at the bottom of the cave. It is difficult to determine with any precision the age, would seem to be in an ancient period, around 20,000 B.C.
They are currently continuing to excavate with extraordinary results. This site is rich in archaeological finds, many of which have revealed and shed light upon our distant ancestors.
You are advised to book in advance and to take some warm clothing with you as the temperature inside of the cave is about 9 degrees centigrade.

Fantastic and large cave near Santander
Aug 2015 • Couples
Our tour was in Spanish, but the tour guide was incredibly passionate and would occasionally explain some things in English. This is a really large cave and wasn't quite as exciting as some of the smaller, more intimate caves, but definitely worth going to if you are in the area.

Spectacular prehistoric cave
May 2015 • Couples
Not the best cave in Northern Spain for prehistoric rock art, but quite spectacular in itself. Tours in Spanish but, as usual, the guides try their best to assist your understanding of what it's all about. Definitely worth a visit.
