Caves of Benifallet
Discover the fascinating underworld of Benifallet! Did you know the difference between stalactites (hanging from the top down) and stalagmites (growing bottom up)? Did you know that the strange formations in the caves were formed by water dripping constantly over thousands of years and infiltrating the rockm, thus eroding it with its carbon compounds? Did you know that to grow 1 cm of stalactite it takes 100 years? Let the imagination roam freely as you explore the so-called Cave of Marvels. Among the eerie-looking formations, can you spot “the woman without head”, “the cow” - or how about “the elephant”, “the dragon”, “the church organ”, “the boar” or “the broccoli” in the cave? 
Open every day from 10.00 – 13.30 and from 16.00 – 18.30
