An interesting side trip on a grey day, these caves are worth seeing. Nice and cool on a hot day, not too cold on a cold day. Easy underfoot but don't wear high heels.

Sorry, but unless you are passing through the area, and not much else to do, you may leave this cave unvisited. If you have been to other caves, you will most certainly be dissapointed with this one. No stalagmites nor stalagtites, mostly grey rock. And...More

It's on 3.90€ for an adult to visit this and it's surprisingly OK. Well laid out with plenty of information.. Kept our group of 11 people of varying ages entertained. You have to take it for what it is and go without expectation.

Thousands of years old. Walking through history. It's only a short walk, but it's amazing. With information boards along the route in lots of languages. It's a place which you cannot describe but have to see for yourself. There are many secrets to these caves...More

A nice side trip to this cave where it was fascinating to walk and admire the spectacular interior. Small entrance fee allows one to take a self-guided tour within the cave. Many photo opportunities, but the prehistoric family placed within the cave and the dinosaurs...More
