We visited on the 18th Feb 2016. Family of 5 with boys aged 13/15/17. We first went to the Ardales museum, where we met our guide Geraldo. Only I speak Spanish so I had to concentrate and translate the explanations by bits to my family, but it was very clear, and you could stop him at any moment if needed.... More

As a retired aged couple we were available to book a trip online at their website, the Prehistory museum, just across the bridge in the lower town. We were part of a group of twenty, all Spanish including children, and the tour guides discussed the history of this site all in Spanish. However, there is an English translation available, a...

This cave is well worth a visit if you want to soak up some prehistory. But be warned that is all you will soak up as the comprehensive underground part of the tour is almost exclusively in Spanish. This is a pity as the guide had an awful lot to say while the English could only gaze around and guess.... More

Visited July 2015, managed to book last 4 places available that week. Caves are fascinating, evidence of human occupation over timescales long enough to leave traces in the stalactites. Felt privileged to be able to visit the site and can't speak highly enough of the guide both for his enthusiasm and clarity. Some practical advice. 1. You really need to... More

First we were given the back story of prehistoric man in Andalusia unfortunately on our visit it was only in spanish, but we got the gist. We then travelled out of town onto dirt roads to the cave. First impressions (other... More

This is an archeologic site, not a tourist cave. The cave has engravings and cave paintings from the Paleolithic and Neolithic period. The staff is very knowledgeable. The presentations are exceptional. Besides engravings and paintings, there are bones left in place. Numerous stone tools. There is some climbing but steps have carved into the floor so that it is not... More
