The caves were very beautiful and well worth a visit, the interesting rock formations and small pools of water were very magical. The caves just seem to go on forever, in fact they were saying that they have discovered a new part that they going to be opening next year but only to small groups because you have to clime a little.
What I didn't like; was the way they herded us through the caves as fast as they could, I hate seeing things in groups as it is and hate nothing more that been herded like I'm some sort if cow. Also the fact that they don't allow photographs "because of preservation" but then they take your photo and try and sell it you after, I know they just trying to raise funds but when you already paid over 8€ for the entrance it's a little annoying.

Definitely worth a visit if you are in the Seville area - about 45 minutes drive north from the city. Tour takes about 45 minutes to an hour and isn't too busy.

Wonderful lakes and rock formations - suggest that you be towards the rear of the line, means you can take your time to see everything.

I was delighted with the small lakes with completely transparent water and the different geological formations that looked like snow.
Unfortonately no photos are allowed.
The tour lasts about an hour and worth a visit

Spectacular caves with enchanting views. Pristine waters, stalagmites and stalagmites without adorns nor artificial colored lights. Enormous rooms with incredible heights.
