The caves themselves are cool but you are not allowed in without going on one of the guided tours (available on headsets in many languages). The tours are only at specific times, cost 9 euros and take 50 minutes. Plus you are constantly being reminded...More

Amazing caves with very interesting formations, presented with well situated lighting. My second visit and I enjoyed it just as much as the first 2 years before. Non-slip shoes are essential though and there are quite a lot of steps and slopes, wet in places,...More

Make sure you book in advance because sots are not always available as number of visitors to the caves is limited. I have been to other caves around Europe and this one is something special. The combination of deposits, caverns and underground water is amazing....More

Grotto is well worth a visit. Reasonably priced tourist attraction. Whole trip took just under an hour & is about 1.2km of walking underground. Only downside for us was that the guided tour was in Spanish only - no English translation available.

And it was, great walk through the caves and seemed to go on forever. GET THE AUDIO, if your Spanish is not up scratch. Good value and well worth a detour if your in the area.
