Visit Pre-Historic Caves in Cantabria & Asturias


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.  UNESCO describes the caves as follows:

"Because of their deep galleries, isolated from external climatic influences, these caves are particularly well preserved. The caves are inscribed as masterpieces of creative genius and as the humanity’s earliest accomplished art. They are also inscribed as exceptional testimonies to a cultural tradition and as outstanding illustrations of a significant stage in human history." 

Are you interested in visiting caves and seeing pre-historic cave art in Spain? You can do it as part of a more complete tour of Cantabria and Asturias, two magnificent regions of Northern Spain where beautiful scenery, stunning coastline and amazing beaches abound.

You only need to let your Totally Spain agent know and we can work cave visits - private or in a small group - like this in to your itinerary, as part of your very own custom private tour in Spain.

Belen, we were thrilled with the arrangements you made for us. As you know, this was our first trip with individual drivers and guides and recommended hotels. Things went very smoothly and stress free. The pace was good in general.    ...
