This is a really good visit, but there are two problems with it.
The first is parking. Galdar doesn't have much and what there is is time limited and full. We found some space on some rough ground right at the bottom of the hill, just before the bridge. It's about a ten minute walk back into town.
The second problem is the signs. There are lots of them, but they fail to say that the Cueva Pintada are actually part of the museum so if you are driving you are likely to go straight past it. Actually, if you are walking that can happen as well unless you see the sign high up above the doorway. If you are walking from the bottom of the hill, it's on the left hand side. Walk up the Calle Bentejui and you'll find it. If you miss the Calle Bentejui you'll see a massive wall on the left of the main road, topped by screens and a metal roof. That's the back end of the site.
Once you do manage to park and find the place it's well worth the effort. If you are going during the busier times of the year, you should consider making an advance booking via the web site. The caves have a strict daily visitor limit and the English Tour only takes place once a day.
The guided tour is a much better experience than a self-guided visit. The guides give information that is not on the notices / presentations and are involved with the ongoing excavations there, so you'll get the latest information.
