Interesting to hear and see the show....
Sep 2019
at the end you do not visit the real cave, only a 3D video of it, but it is very interesting to visit and hear the explanation by the local guide, she explained very well about the findings and why we cannot visit the original cave, we loved it, and price is reasonable and place as well, there are toilets near the parking.

Book in advance

We headed here after the town, but on arrival the ticket office simply stated all tours were booked out for the day.

So worth calling in advance. The setting is magical.

Very interesting and informative - if you speak Spanish.

This is a cool location, located in a beautiful beech forest. However, the 90-minute guided tour is a bit long if you don't speak Spanish, and our children were very restless by the end of it. Actually, by the middle of it. You only get to see a tiny portion of the caves, which is completely understandable but a bit of a small payoff for the investment in time.

Excellent guiding and the 3D tour was great
May 2016
We booked in advance and said we were British and the guide, Judet, spoke good English. There was stacks of information at the cave where you can see where prehistoric families lived, and an impressive 3D film (with 3D glasses) of the prehistoric cave paintings found in the 350 metre interior, now closed to visitors because of CO2 build-up. Highlights: the shell midden, the paintings of bison and the topography of the whole conical mountain covered in holm oak and mixed woods

Excellent guide!

I find myself increasingly irritated by people who don't research a place before visiting and then complain on TripAdvisor. All the literature clearly says that the original caves are closed to protect the cave paintings (deterioration caused by visitors breath!). We visited in January and were told that the English guide was not available. However one of the Spanish guides agreed to give us the presentation and her English was pretty good. She had but one aim only which was to ensure we that we understood the importance of these caves and their history. This place hasn't had the money spent on it like Alltamira or even Ekain but is equally important. We felt privileged to have had this experience. Please note, previous reviewers - it's not Disney!
