Grutas de Mira de Aire
These caves were discovered in 1947. The entrance is 300m in altitude, but inside they reach 180m in depth. Their formation goes back 150 million years to the Middle Jurassic age, when the dinosaurs populated this region. Their footprints can be seen here today.

The caves are lit with coloured lights that emphasise the beauty of the shapes of the stalagmites and stalagtites. During the tour, your guide will draw your attention to the strange limestone shapes, formed over millions of years, such as the "Jellyfish", the "Martian" and the magnificent "Organ". The "Black River" descends in a waterfall to the "Great Lake", where the magical sound and light show takes place.

The lighting, steps, stepping-stones, a lift and the background music make the descent to this hidden world into an unforgettable experience.
