A nature’s marvel
The amazing Cuevas del Aguila represent one of Avila’s geological heritage gems. There is access to practically the entire cave and they are in excellent state of preservation for visitors
The caves reach 5O meters depth and have a 1000 meters footpath. The tour descends along the paved path, with steps, which borders the galleries where stalactites and stalagmites of various colors and sizes abound. The lights highlight the color of the limestone formations
There is daily access with intervals of 30 minutes and a walk of around 40 minutes, where visitors are accompanied by supervisor. The caves remain at a stable temperature of about 17 °C throughout the year, and a humidity close to 100%
It is difficult to accurately date the origin of the caves, but experts date their complex geological process from 500 thousand to 1 million years. The cavity is formed by groundwater currents while slow seeps of rainwater create the different types of speleothems
Discover the majestic underground world
There are not enough words to describe the beauty of the impressive stalactites hanging from the ceiling in Cuevas del Aguila. Many of them in an array of colors given its rich diversity in minerals. A visit to the caves should not be missed!
