Caves of Canelobre

The Caves of Canelobre are one of the main tourist attractions in Alicante. They are located at an altitude of 700 meters on the northern slope of the Cabeçó D’Or mountains. Inside the caves you can explore more than 80,000 m2 of space, accessible through a 45-meter tunnel, where water and rocks have created formations such as stalactites, stalagmites, columns, etc. There is a calm atmosphere created by soft music and lighting.

This cave dates back to the Late Jurassic period, which is 145 million years old. Little is known about this cave but the discovery of the caves has been attributed to the Arabs in the 1000s. In the mid-1900s the caves were opened to the public. During the Civil War, they were used as repair shops for Republican Army aircraft, and at that time the access tunnel was drilled.
