The visit


Cave paintings. Harpoons. Wood.


  • The tour begins at the kiosk adjacent to the hermitage of San Mamés (Basondo, Kortezubi).
    From here, the group ascends to the cave entrance with a guide.
    In this stage, it is important to know the natural environment of the surrounding Holm oak forest of Cantabria and its particular flora and fauna.
  • Once inside the cave, visitors can witness the extent of the research work conducted on the site, which was resumed a few years ago, and learn about the findings.
  • Back at the hermitage of San Mamés, a sophisticated 3D virtual replica provides visitors with the opportunity to tour the whole cave, understand its formation and morphology, and certainly admire the examples of prehistoric art that the cave contains.
