Went there to show my son his first cave. It is accessible for a toddler, not too big and fast to visit. There are big stalagmites and stalactites. The price us good too.

we had heard great things about this place, but we did not expect it to surpass them ! These caves are beautiful and jaw dropping. Cool retreat from the sun and the history that surrounds these caves are spin chilling. A definite must see.

If you like to see caves or just want some time away from the beach it could be interesting. Small cave with some historical backgrounds. At the entrance there is a little cafe and the information where you pay a fee of 4 euros each...More
