"I fully agree with GulabJammun's comments: excellent tour with a good English language guide; caves are made special by the lack of any lighting; you must have shoes with a good grip, because the floor is slippery at times. I would add that some of the paintings are indeed amazing; that the guide (..."a member of the family who discovered the caves) does his best to entertain the children as well, for instance by making jokes about the shapes of the rocks, by calling "draculino" (small Dracula) the small bat and so on. A German girl of 5 or 6 kept her eyes wide open, during the whole trip! Pity we only saw one small bat; the guide said there are more in different times of the year; and that the tour was only 1 km (return included) long.
Other pieces of warning: you can only enter with the guide, there is 1 tour/hour, the cave is closed from 1 pm to 5 pm and some tour may be skipped, if there are not enough people.

"Not a cave person but intrigued by paintings from 10 - 15 thousand years ago. Don't miss this, this cave is like a cathedral in places and an imposing experience. Well worth the visit. The guide even made the effort of making the English translation although I was the only English speaker! Really ni..."ce and friendly tour.

"There are three reasons to put the Pileta caves on your list of Ronda attractions. Firstly, the caves themselves have unusually attractive formations and colours. Secondly, there is a welcome absence of the kind of commercialism that tends to ruin most cave tours - there is no electric lighting in t..."he caves (you are provided with a lantern) and tours are limited to a maximum number of 25 persons. Thirdly, there is an excellent range of cave art from the Paleolithic and Neolithic periods to be seen, a rare experience these days when caves with similar art are typically off-limits to the general public. Our guide was well informed and reasonably fluent in English, and the tour was a highlight of our visit to the Ronda region. As others have noted, it is important to wear good shoes because of the slippery surfaces inside the caves, and the timing of tours is not predictable, being dependent on there being between 15 and 25 visitors present at any one time. Highly recommended if you have ...
