Create an itinerary including Cuevas dels Hams
On a guided tour of the subterranean caves of Cuevas dels Hams, discovered in 1905, admire an impressive array of stalagmites, stalactites, and underwater lakes. Artistic lighting adds to the mysterious atmosphere of this underground world. Look for the fish hook–shaped formations to which the caves owe their name, as "hams" means "hooks" in Spanish. Your tour ends at the biggest of all the lakes, where you listen to classical music played from an animatronic gondola. After all, this lake is called the "Sea of Venice."

  • Great day out visiting the Ham Caves. Amazing inside and tour guide friendly and helpful. The power point show was an unusal experience, shame it was all about 'the big bang' though, yet it was...

  • Great tour, beautiful caves with increadible formations, good guides, exciting lights and visual effects in the shows. A must do experience and one you won't forget! And the price is reasonable. I do, however, have a couple of things which bring my review to only 4 stars, in some parts of the caves there is not very nice looking wire fencing, obviously there to protect the formations which is completely understandable however it does spoil the view and looks very flimsy, perhaps glass barriers would be better, with some small holes to take photos unobstructed by the glare of the glass? There are also a lot of concrete walkways constructed through the caves, which again is understandable for walking on safety, however it's sad that much of the cave floor has been covered by concrete. Wooden or metal walkways would have been much more appealing, however this can obviously not be changed now. All in all though, I really enjoyed the experience.
  • Beautiful place! My first caves and I really like it. Amazing short classic music concert inside! But be ready that MAYBE u will need to wait a few hours to enter (time of entrance u have in your ticket). I was alone and lucky not to wait too long:)
