You can enjoy the cool water in many beaches in the region but caves are also fresh.
In summer, it’s hot, very hot and a good swim in the sea is fantastic to refresh.
However why not take the opportunity to enjoy a bit of freshness in cool caves.
Unexplored galleries, cave art and a great stone sky where the sun never rises will make you consider the caves of the Region of Murcia as ‘your precious’.
Nearly all the caves in the Murcia Region are formed by limestone or dolomite, which results in the large number of cavities catalogued.
The longest-stretching cave is the Cueva del Puerto, in Calasparra, where some 5 kilometres have been mapped.
Some of the caverns are open for guided tours. They can be explored by groups of cavers accompanied by guides.
The verticalest drop cavern in the region is the the Destapada, in Isla Plana (Mazarrón), which goes down 230 m.
- the Torreta (-175 m), in the Revolcadores massif
- the Buitre (-106 m), in the massif of the same name (Caravaca)
- the Talayón (-152 m), in Lorca
- the Caneja, near Barranda, which is 220 metres long and 99 deep.
Don’t forget ROCK ART at the CUEVA SIMA DE LA SERRETA in CIEZA.
