The Cueva de las Calaveras, located in the Marina Alta, is a cavity over 900 meters long, which owes its name to the fact that the remains of twelve people were found inside during a caving expedition carried out in the 17th century.
The grotto stands out for its high ceilings and is divided into a 500-meter-long flooded area and a 400-meter-long dry area that can be visited by the public. During the tour you can see stalactites, stalagmites, beautiful domes over 20m high and fossils and bone remains among many other things.
The Cueva de las Calaveras was inhabited between the Neanderthals and Hommo Sapiens, as we can well guess from the numerous remains that we will find along the route. The visit to the cave generates an atmosphere of peace and tranquility, as well as being very interesting and fun for the little ones in the house.
