Cuevas de San José (San José caves)
An underground river of San José with its rocky landscapes of approx 2.5 km long maintains and the temperature of + 20ºC is considered the longest navigable underground river in Europe. The Caves which sometimes are called “the heart of the earth” are full of stalactites and stalagmites that you can enjoy during the boat ride as well as some cave drawings left centuries ago. After some reconstructions and light installation in 1920’s the route became more open to tourists and much safer. A unique place to visit for sure!
After the caves we will go to Vilafames, a beautiful town that joined the official list of Spain’s Most Beautiful Towns in 2015. Vilafames is a town painted in palate of rustic browns and whitewashed hues with streets filled with history, culture, gastronomy and relaxing atmosphere.
Vilafamés stands out with its Arab origin old town dating back to the 11th century as well as its castle resting on the hill above the city. The castle with an amazing panoramic view was built in 14th century and was a strategic location during the wars. Rock stone predominates in all of the constructions of the old town, likewise historical set of Vilafamés is declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 2005.
