Take the local bus from town centre as the walk is a good trek from town. The caves themselves are stunning with superb accustics and occasionally concerts are held inside. Well worth a visit.

Because it was rainy in Costa del Sol, we looked for alternative things to do. Without any expectations, we went to see the caves. I believe we were lucky to get “directly in” as it wasn’t high season - then maybe it’s best to book...More
