On this tour, you will visit the famous Caves of “El Castillo” and “Las Monedas”, both World Heritage Sites by UNESCO since 2008 for their cave paintings. The paintings in the El Castillo Cave are considered among the oldest preserved in the world. If you like rock art, this is a mandatory visit if you come to Cantabria as you will visit an authentic cave with paintings from the Paleolithic. You will be surprised by the legacy that our ancestors left us thousands of years ago.

Our next stop will be to take a walk through the town of Puente Viesgo and enjoy the views over the Pas river.
