A stunning creation of the gods
Cave of Enebralejos
Although it was not rediscovered until 1932, this magnificent cave is an incredible 40 million years old, boasting spectacular stalagmite and stalactite formations. Visitors can tour three of the three galleries, which 600 of the cave’s 3,670 metres.
It boasts eye-catching figures that are source of inspiration for visitors, who can make out the ‘Burial Room’, the ‘Shrine’ and formations reminiscent of a waterfall, phantom and coloured aall, which form some of the most intriguing visual spectacles. And as if the colours and shapes were not surprising enough, they can also admire the lofty ‘Needle Ceiling’, ‘Upstream’, ‘Birth’ and ‘Torticollis’ in some of the other galleries.
During the Copper Age, the cave provided shelter for our ancestors, who used it as a necropolis, decorating the walls with etchings and paintings that have earned it the status of an Asset of Cultural Interest. More recently, the tales passed down by word of mouth among the inhabitants of Prádena claim that it was closed on the orders of the Inquisition, who believed it was a hiding place for Jews.
