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!
