Dark and cool, these limestone caves on the edge of Porto Cristo have become one of Mallorca's top tourist sights. Groups are accompanied along the 1200m of smooth paths by guides who tell you in four languages how to interpret the magnificent stalactite formations within.
The colours and formations within the cave are truly astonishing and those with a creative imagination will see formations resembling a cactus, a flag and even a snow capped mountain. The stalactites grow around 1cm every 100 years. There is also the Fairies' Theatre, Diana's Bath and the one-hour tour ends with a floodlit, floating violin concert on Lake Martel, Europe's largest underground lake. The lake is named after the French geologist Edouard Martel, who first explored these caves in the late 19th century, at the commission of Archduke Ludwig Salvator. Afterwards you can return by boat across the lake to the exit.
