The cave art is truly amazing and well worth a visit. Good to know that your ticket gives you access to Tito Bustillo as well as another cave which also has a tour (and 300 steps) plus the museum. Do leave time for the museum,...More

A fabulous visit, if you like caves and palaeolithic cave art. There's a 1 -1.5 km walk underground through a tunnel and the dried up channel of an ancient river. Then you are shown the cave paintings, drawings, and engravings. Guided in Spanish. Dress warmly....More

This cave was discovered in 1968 by a group of university students and contains paleolithic art spanning thousands of years. The wall paintings are vibrant in colour and display the skill and artistry of Stone Age people living in the area. Well worth a visit.

Only a few of the 'cave man' painting are available for the public to see which was a little disappointing. Also if you don't speak Spanish the tour guide doesn't speak English also (and no audio kits either).

As other reviewers have said it is vital to turn up early so that you have time to visit the exhibition which is on the 1st floor in the building where you collect your ticket. We reserved tickets on-line and paid just over 7 euros...More

It is a must to do prior to actually seeing the caves. Very well laid out and most of it is in English as well.

We were fortunate to be the only people in the caves when we visited. Listening to the water drip, looking at the painting, and the general atmosphere took us back thousands of years. It was amazing.
