Well worth a visit for the stunning and very interesting formations inside the caves. I struggled a bit to understand the guide, as while my Spanish is reasonable, she spoke very quickly!

We visited with our son (10) and our daughter (8) in her wheelchair. As we approached the train into the cave the guides came to us and together we decided whether we could transfer into the train and use the wheelchair provided in the cave,...More

Such an interesting cave tour with incredible stalactites and stalagmites and other formations. Starting with a short train trip into the cave. The only disappointing aspect was the guide spoke only Spanish and we tried hard to understand but missed most of what was said....More

Went here on a rainy day in August - highly recommend, but phone or visit to book ahead - it's very busy. Even the drive up is great, and we loved the cave.

We chose this as a rainy day activity - and unfortunately so did lots of other people! After booking our time slot we waited two hours in the car because the café was a heaving mass of people. It is in fact a bit of...More

Probably one of the best caves in the world if talking about the amount of pure stalactites and stalagmites. There is of course many caves with these formations but none with the amount you can see in this cave. Nice amenities, the tour was great...More

I would strongly advise not going to the caves. You can't get any tickets. We turned up in the morning only to be told the next available entry was 8:15pm!! Tried again 3 days later and the same problem. You can only book by telephone...More

We visited this cave on a hot day in Spain, we have seen several caves in the gorge region of France but this far exceeds them ! It is truly breathtaking, and the fact that the tour is only in Spanish does not matter as...More
