Fantàstic
Dec 2017 • Family
It has been an amazing visit. Everything was very well explained by Samuel. From outside it doesn't seem a good place but you will surprise with the lights, the figures and everything. I would write this review in my language but TripAdvisor don't allow me to do it in Catalan. Franco would be proud.

Great fun

Great fun visit that last about an hour to the caves were you will find out how the cave was formed and how humans have lived in there through the years.
Great explanations with videos and figures that kids and grown ups will enjoy.
Also as it's cool temperature inside it's a great visit to do on a hot summer day.

Adventure visit

A real must see / must do!
An enthousiastic team of two guides, Ramon and Sergio, and translator Vicky lead us through our first steps in speleology. They gave lots of information while we were crawling through narrow passages and walking through the underground river, profesionally dressed in neoprene suits.
Sitting in one of the caves with no light at all and only the sound of the underground river was really impressive.
Really great!

A really interesting and pleasant excursion
Aug 2016 • Family
I would highly recommend a visit. The caves were inhabited by neanderthal man and later prehistoric man. There are a number of interesting displays depicting life in the cave and some multimedia presentations, which are surprisingly effective. I went with my 6 year old son, who was fascinated.

The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Guides speak in Catalan, but devices are provided, facilitating commentaries in other languages including English and French. Not speaking Catalan in no way reduces the enjoyment of this attraction.

I would also say that this attraction is excellent value for money. I can't remember exactly what I paid, but it was very reasonable indeed and my 6 year old was given free entry.

The town has a delightful "old town" with a lovely church square. There is a very good tourist office and a couple of other museums, which sadly we had no time to visit.

Between 2pm and 4pm, everything closes for siesta, which will come as a surprise if you are staying in a coastal resort town, where this does not apply.

Very good indeed
Jul 2016 • Family
Made of pebbles stuck together with sand which has risen above sea-level. Then cored out by a natural spring. Very interesting place to visit. They have videos (keep the small children also amused) throughout showing possible scenes of neanderthal and early human inhabitants. Much more about the human side than the minerals and rocks. In my home country of England it would be the other way round. Not sure which is better.

Longest conglomerate caves in Europe

Very interesting caves. The 'tour' is well presented with a guide and inclusive audio details in English. There is adequate and appropriate lighting, and safe walking. The tour takes about an hour.
Well worth a visit and not too expensive,

Caves de l'Espluga ....... Well worth a visit.
Sep 2013 • Family
Unfortunately this attraction does not seem to figure in the day trips lists,which is a pity, although on the up side they don't get crowded by coach parties. We hired a car and went into the National Park for the day .... again well worth a visit as this is REAL Spain not "tourist" Spain (when on holiday we usually hire a car and see the real country off the tourist routes .... very rewarding !!!)
.... I digress ... The caves, a large cave complex in use from the stone age through to Roman times and latterly to store arms during the Spanish Civil War. guided tours but with hand held guides .... just select required language,plenty of very informative displays ... children were really fascinated .... Word of warning .... don't pitch up between midday and 4 pm . (siesta don't you know) also no cameras allowed.
