Overview
More
With a volume of more than 100,000 m3 and a surface covering 9,371 m2, the Tourist galleries represent approximately one-third of the cave. The cave has been used as a habitat, a burial site and for cultural expression. There are remnants testifying to the passage of hunters, gatherers and fishermen from more than 30,000 years ago. The General Visit starts with the screening of a audiovisual presentation in which you will be able to see spectacular details of the cave (10 minutes). Then an audio-guided visit through the different chambers of the Cave, in a pleasant walk of about 45 minutes where you will discover the many secrets the grotto keeps (audio-guided in Spanish, English, German, French, Italian and Russian). When the cave closes its doors, a small group of privileged people can enter the mystery of the underworld to enjoy the magnificence and beauty of the cave, and discover its secrets. You can choose between three modalities of Exclusive Tours

Just had an amazing evening tour with a small group. Started at 2100, costs €5 more than regular entry. Miguel was an amazing and engaging guide full of passion for these breath taking caves. Can't recommend doing a tour this way enough without the hordes...More

We took the exclusive tour, which meant that we visited the cave after closing time with a small group. We were all very happy with the tour, it was not too expensive and felt really personal, the guide was great and spoke good english.

Visited with teenagers. Took about 45mins. 300+ steps but not too physical. Take water. Don’t wear flip flops. But if you like caves, spectacular!
