The natural museum remains open during the siesta and is therefore perfect for an afternoon activity, among other things. The caves were formed millions of years ago, but are still changing now, albeit very slowly, at a rate of about 1 centimeter every 100 years.

The natural complex is located at an altitude of 700 meters. Inside the cave is one of the highest vaults in the Iberian Peninsula, about 70 m, comparable to that of a cathedral. During your visit, you can admire the whimsical shapes that the different concretions have taken on, such as chandeliers, jellyfish, organs, and many spectacular shapes.

Brightly colored lights show the interesting shapes of the stalactites and stalagmites. The main attraction is a candlestick-shaped formation, after which the caves are also named. The Cave is located in Busot, 23 km from the city of Alicante and 39 km from Benidorm.
