Look inside the 70-meter vault that looks like the dome of a cathedral, and see highlights such as "The Holy Family" with its column that towers 25 meters high and "The Canelobre" stalagmite formed over 100,000 years ago.

The trip was a great experience for our family!

Juan Carlos was very knowledgable about the places we’ve visited with him. He told us a lot of interesting stories about caves and the local area. We’ve had a great communication throughout. If you wish your visit to the caves to be really special, you should definitely go with Juan Carlos!

An incredibly enjoyable experience with a great tour guide

The guide and the whole trip was excellent. Great safe travel and an enjoying ride up the Spanish countryside to the location of the caves, the entire journey we were pleasantly informed about local history. The caves themselves were amazing and Juan (the guide) was so informative about them and could tell he was genuinely so passionate and knowledgeable about everything that was on offer. As an added bonus, he stopped off at the local town of Busot, and we went to another museum (free) and then had a short wander around the area seeing the church and town hall. This was a nice added bonus. The journey back was equally as good with even more information and pleasant conversation, we were also offered bottled water by Juan which was greatly appreciated in the heat. The vehicle we travelled in was safe, clean and had air con. The location that we met at was easy to find and central to the area.

Loved our trip. Not only was the destination amazing but our Guide Juan and his lively wife Maria and daughter Laura were just the nicest people you could hope to meet. After the caves we went for coffee in local village and there was a festival on so was great to hear and see that. Highly recommended
