Visit Cuevas del Aguila

and discover a hidden world

The caves are nestled in the small hill known as Cerro Romperropas or Cerro del Aguila (Hill of the Eagle in English), which gives name to the caves. The limestone rock is hidden by the oak forest that covers the hill, which makes the underground landscape we are going to discover even more surprising.

Tours to the caves is done on foot, so it is advisable to wear appropriate footwear due to the high degree of humidity. There are some descriptive boards at the entrance with complementary information for the visitors.

A supervisor/guide joins the visitors through this fascinating underground world, providing them with information about the discovery and unique formations of this amazing karst cavity, unparalleled to any other in the Iberian Peninsula.

The caves are open to the public every day of the year, with a course of 1000 meters that lasts approximately 40 minutes. Admissions costs 8€, you can buy them both online and on-site. For children under 5, the entrance is free.

“Trip Advisor's 'near me now' feature is our new favorite travel companion. While staying at the parador in Oropesa we found these incredible caves only a half an hour away, among the Sierra de los Gredos. Couldn't believe the variety of color- red, orange, brown , white, even some green. Stalactites and stalagmites, pools of water. Perfectly uplit to showcase the splendor of the formations. Walked through with our mouths agape. Will never forget this experience!”


“This is quite simply one of the most astonishingly beautiful sights in Spain. Having lived here for 7 years and travelled extensively I didn't think there were 'that' much more that I hadn't seen. As in real surprises.

This cave genuinely surprised me. Its beauty is vast and breathtaking. I couldn't stop looking around it. It was quite mesmerising. Like nothing I have ever seen; and I've been in a few caves.”

“Fantastic tour and a really inspirational cave complex. Been to many before but this is simply the best of all. Watch out for the steps!”

“We visited the caves in September and were amazed at the size and quality of the grotto. Its a single cavern with steps down and a 1km walkway around. Its not a guided walk but they only allow a certain number of people in at a time and you get an introductory talk (in Spanish only) and are then left to follow the walkway around at your own pace. It was a constant 20 degrees so quite a nice change from the hot day outside.

Really spectacular formations everywhere in the cave. The most extensive I've ever seen. Well worth a visit just outside the town of Ramacastanas”
