  • 2 caves to visit. We only visited the cave with the drawings due to lack of time at the end of the day. No one at the counter on arrival. The guide returns from the previous visit and starts smoking his cigarillo (out before the visit, fortunately), his breath will thus contribute to the degradation of the drawings. The drawings, concentrated in one place, are really interesting. ! Stalactites tightened and beautiful. Beware of the imagination of the guide: he does not mean that he does not know therefore invents, is not aware of the latest interpretations of ornate caves, muddy jokes, etc. This cave is worth it. Parking: the best is at the side of the road, opposite the hillside of the cave in front of a nice panorama, on the cob. The other against the hillside, more intimate is conducive to theft.

  • These are caves really exceptional by the number of its concretions where one can move without barrier !!! For prehistoric paintings, for me it was a first and it gave me the thrill of being able to approach them because they are the real ones dated some twenty thousand years..!!! The guide was passionate so exciting!

  • Terrific, awesome... etc went there with my 4 years old who was a bit scared of the cave at first but we all found it really really nice! There was no big crowd which was a plus.
  • Very good, family run business. The guide translated a lot of the tour into English for us and the two caves were brilliant and fascinating in different ways. Original 30,000 year old paintings plus loads of natural features.
