Very beautiful! Prehistoric people lived there. And now when you are there alone and with the special music which is played there - you feel a little nervous))))

What a great way to spend a hot afternoon as it is nice an cool in the caves. The entire experience is very well presented to the public. All written information as you go round is in several languages and you really get the feel of all the history behind the caves.
Great coffee in the coffee shop as well. Guide book only costs €1

Not damp or shivery But still the Cave of Skulls and at least 50,000 years old. When a Moorish King Ahli Moho aware danger was near it is said he took refuge here along with his harem of 150 women who disappeared. When the cave was rediscovered 150 Skulls were found in a circle!

Later again parts of a boat and two more skulls were found - but the treasure (jewellery of 150 'wives' has ever been found.

You can find this cave if not the treasure for €3.50. Well worth it. Stop off for a refreshing lemon ice drink before you drive on and enjoy!

These caves are a pleasant way to spend an hour or so, and in the summer a good way to get out of the baking heat. Cost was 3.5 Euro each, which is pretty reasonable. The caves themselves are nothing really spectacular, but they are still fun nevertheless. They are an easy walk, no steep steps or anything, my 82 year old mother-in-law had no problems walking the 500m or so through the caves. There is much made of the fact that they were inhabited by prehistoric man, and at one point there is a little scene of models of a prehistoric family. To be honest though, it looks like a group of primary school children have made it, but that said if you have younger children then yours will probably really enjoy it. Our teenage children thought it was a hoot. There are also many dinosaur models around the entrance, which seemed to serve no obvious purpose to me, other than for people to pose next to for photos. There is a small gift shop full of the usual stuff, loads of bracelets, hats etc. etc. There is also a cafe/ bar which we didn't frequent, so can't comment.

This was an unexpected find and we had a great time exploring the cave. The information provided along the route was great. This is a truely impressive cave and the legend that you'll hear about it makes it even more intriguing!
