The Underground River of the Caves of San Jose is a beautiful natural cave.Visit the longest navigable underground river in Europe will allow you to enter into the depths of the earth a peaceful boat plying waters, admire the fanciful shapes of the rocks that the action of water has shaped over thousands of years backward and forward in time at breakneck speed to imagine the growth of stalactites and stalagmites, hear the silence, feel the murmur of water, the echo produced by a drop of water on an underground lagoon, discovering a beautiful landscape that nature has kept secret since the mists of time today.

Amazing experience but was very disappointed that there was no commentary in English and hence we missed a lot if vital info I'm sure. Views are awesome but don't go if you are claustrophobic as its quite small and dark inside.
