Don’t attempt this if you have bad knees, are unsteady on your feet or if you are unfit. On arrival you are given a headset to correspond with your language. Soon you are inside the caves which are spectacular.to see. Underground caves, lakes and rivers....More

We found them by mistake. The town is beautiful, cute “white town” with all buildings white and yellow. The caverns were amazing and huge (for those that are claustrophobic there is no problem). We walked for an hour and it seemed like 20 minuets only....More

This is the reason people go to Aracena and lots of people visit these caves. Too many people visit them. The group sizes are too large for an enjoyable visit. They herd people through, ask you not to take pictures, take pictures of you and...More

A calcareous formation with great stalactites and stalagmites under the castle. To see the grotto we spend around 50 minutes. Several lakes and beautiful calcareous scultures.

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.

The nicest caves we have ever visited. Tremendous variety of features. Great guides. The large caverns are particularly stunning and three is an abundance of colour in the rocks.

What can we say!! Nature outdoes us every time! An amazing experience made all the better by the superb and sympathetic access. Might be a bit claustrophobic for some and there are a couple of steep sections, but overall the walkways, lighting and narrative was...More

One of the most beautiful caves I've visited. The price of nine euros may seem expensive at first, but it is definitely worth it. You can't take pictures though.
