The Artà caves, is a great sight and attraction for the entire family, with the many colorful lights and impressive stalactites and stalagmites down here.
The Artà caves, Cuevas de Artà, are located just outside the little holiday resort of Canyamel, in the municipality of Capdepera. However, the caves has their name from their rightful owner, the cultural town of Artà.
These stalactite caves became famous, after Julius Verne found inspiration for his book, Journey to the Center of the Earth.
The impressive caves of stalactites and stalagmites here, have been thousands of years underway, and still not finished growing. You will be taken through tunnels, between the many chambers down here. Many chambers, have been given religious names, such as the “Purgatory”, because of their storytelling formations. Another interesting chamber, is the “Queen’s Hall”.
Guided tours in the caves, are about 45 minutes long.
