The Cueva de los Franceses (Cave of the French) has emerged through the action of water, which, over the centuries, has created a finely sculpted natural work of art. The cave is situated between Covalagua and the Páramo de la Lora and was once the burial ground of many French soldiers during the War of Independence.

Inside the cave there is a beautiful collection of stalactite formations that can be admired along a distance of 500 metres.
