“Do not miss this visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

We liked the long walk through the caves with all the stones formations and beautiful lakes which we could not imagine the existence.

“Exciting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

It felt like an adventure. Spectacular formations. We were only english people on tour but the Spanish guide took time to explain what we were seeing in English.

“beautiful cave”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

I like caves and I've visited many in my life, but this is one of the most beautiful ones. The visit takes about an hour but time flies in there since there are so many interesting things to see and discover

“Very beautiful, natural experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

Our daytrip to Aracena came at just the right time - it gave our teenagers a break from museums and the crowds at Alhambra and Alcazars - to experience a lovely small town and an amazing natural wonder of the Gruta and the castle built above it. The representative in the tourist center near Gruta del las Maravillas was very friendly and helpful - and gave us a guide to the contemporary art sculptures all around town.

“a reason to come over here for most....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

But for us , it was an extra which we enjoyed because it was the first time in a cave. No photographs, no standing still to absorb the surroundings. Not the friendliest guided tour we ever experienced and very very humid.
