The Ardines Cave is an immense geological dome that forms part of the system of galleries of the Macizo de Ardines. It stands out for the size of its large main chamber, where the ceiling reaches a height of 40 metres, now pierced by a natural hole that allows daylight to enter.
Visiting the Cave of Ardines requires visitors to climb up and down 300 steps.
The visit to the Cave of Ardines lasts for 45 minutes on average. It is open the same days the Rupestrian Art Centre opens.
The Cuevona de Ardines, a huge geological dome, can also be visited with no additional charge, with the purchase of a ticket to visit the Centro de Arte Rupestre de Tito Bustillo (Tito Bustillo Cave Art Centre), however, the inclusion of the Cuevona visit is not guaranteed with the purchase of the ticket.
Visitors are not allowed to take photographs or film during the guided tour of the Cuevona de Ardines.
