With a volume of more than 100,000 m3 and a surface covering 9,371 m2, the Tourist galleries represent approximately one-third of the cave. The cave has been used as a habitat, a burial site and for cultural expression. There are remnants testifying to the passage of hunters, gatherers and fishermen from more than 30,000 years ago. The General Visit starts with the screening of a audiovisual presentation in which you will be able to see spectacular details of the cave (10 minutes). Then an audio-guided visit through the different chambers of the Cave, in a pleasant walk of about 45 minutes where you will discover the many secrets the grotto keeps (audio-guided in Spanish, English, German, French, Italian and Russian). When the cave closes its doors, a small group of privileged people can enter the mystery of the underworld to enjoy the magnificence and beauty of the cave, and discover its secrets. You can choose between three modalities of Exclusive Tours

Very well organised tour. Caves are impressive. Warning. When you buy your tickets you may have to wait for an hour or two before you can get in a tour. Apparently you can prebook on line

We are lucky enough to have been invited to see the Cuban Ballet in the Caves next week and just wondered if anybody can tell me how cold it will be? I imagine that sitting inside a cave for a couple of hours can be quite chilling. What should we wear?
