Have visited the caves 4 times now and each time I am blown away by the vastness and the beauty! Unbelievable that something so amazing is hidden away underground. Definitely worth the entrance fee.

We had a group of 25 take a bus from Seville. One hour out of Seville. This was a pretty cool and interesting site to see.

Sometimes you can pay 8.50 and get 8.50's worth of nothing but this is a spectacle WORTH 8.50. From the modest exposition display above the ticket counter (with a breathtaking case of quartz and other pretty rocks) to the square stone entrance hall where you await your allotted tour time (beware they only let 1000 people in per day to...

We visited here between Christmas and New Year. The staff were friendly and helpful and an audio guide in English was available from the office next door for €1.50(basically to cover cost of the headphones they give you to use with the iPod). Guide is just about right in length but would help if there was some pointers as to... More

What a place! If you visit Spain, you really need to visit this place. These caverns are something really beautiful. You spend over one hour inside but you will see something that blows your mind. I have seen other caverns in America, but I have to admit, this is the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. It is located in Aracena,... More

A quirky place, simply wonderful as the name says. It is unbelievable how nature is able to create such fantastic structures. Certainly an obligatory place to visit in the region of Andaluzia. More than a kilometer walking through impressive caves and formations.

I don't think I have ever seen caverns that are as extensive as these anywhere. one area after the next, pools of water, stalagmites and stalactites, flowstones.... The accidental discovery of the caverns was a nice piece of history - in the middle of town and under a castle :-). Tour - roughly an hour long. We went in winter... More

A set of caves, all breathtaking, with stalagmites, stalactites, underground lakes, colorful views - absolutely worth seeing. Be careful: 1 - the is a limit of visitors per day, so the sooner the better, 2 - you may have to wait for the entry, as there are designated times for visit. If you don't speak Spanish, go for an audio-guide.

The caves are interesting but the tour guide took a very long time to explain things that it got a bit boring. In addition the lights weren't working properly so we did not get to see the last part of the tour.

Wonderful and extensive cave system, beautifully lit, displaying magnificent stalactites, stalagmites and underground lagoons. Everyone likes the cave with the anatomically accurate body parts, the most!
