A calcareous formation with great stalactites and stalagmites under the castle. To see the grotto we spend around 50 minutes. Several lakes and beautiful calcareous scultures.

If you're into caves and geologic monuments, you must visit Gruta de las Maravillas. It is magic and you're presented with awesome underground landscapes during the whole guided visit (which takes about 45 minutes). Unfortunately, photos are not allowed and the guide (at least the...More

Grotto is well worth a visit. Reasonably priced tourist attraction. Whole trip took just under an hour & is about 1.2km of walking underground. Only downside for us was that the guided tour was in Spanish only - no English translation available.

And it was, great walk through the caves and seemed to go on forever. GET THE AUDIO, if your Spanish is not up scratch. Good value and well worth a detour if your in the area.

The nicest caves we have ever visited. Tremendous variety of features. Great guides. The large caverns are particularly stunning and three is an abundance of colour in the rocks.

What can we say!! Nature outdoes us every time! An amazing experience made all the better by the superb and sympathetic access. Might be a bit claustrophobic for some and there are a couple of steep sections, but overall the walkways, lighting and narrative was...More

One of the most beautiful caves I've visited. The price of nine euros may seem expensive at first, but it is definitely worth it. You can't take pictures though.
