The pre-historic caves and cave paintings that you can see in Northern Spain ,and Cantabria especially, are incredible. Eighteen caves have been given UNESCO World heritage status with Altamira in Santillana del Mar being the best known but not the only one with Paleolithic Cave Art.

They are also inscribed as exceptional testimonies to a cultural tradition and as outstanding illustrations of a significant stage in human history."
