Altamira Cave

A cave-painting masterpiece.

The prehistoric paintings, drawings and carvings in the Altamira Cave are one of the first testimonies of universal human art. They were made between 36,000 and 13,000 years ago. The cave, discovered by a local in 1868, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985. Although it is actually closed to the public for conservation purposes, you can visit the neo-cave: a replica of the original one. In addition, you will be able to visit the exhibition rooms of the Altamira Museum and learn all about the cave and details of how it was discovered.
