Cueva de la Pileta, Hundidero and Cueva del Gato, a glance into the world inside the Ronda mountains...

pileta horseA quite unusal tour in three parts: first we visit the Pileta-cave, a one hour guided tour through the most amazing world of stalactites, colorfull mineral cascades and prehistoric cave paintings, dated over 32.000 years old.  A journey to the beginnings of our human history.

From there we drive near the entrance of "El Hundidero" (sunken place). A hugh whole in the rock is the entrance to a 4 km long cave, crossing the entire mountain. We just walk down to the entrance of the cave! It is an impressive hugh whole in the rocky mountian, but will not enter it, this could only be done with special gear. 

amazing hundideroAfter coming back up, we drive again down to the river on the other side of the mountain and walk to the other end of the same cave, where a river flows out in a waterfall, it has a different name on this side, called "Cueva del Gato" the cat's cave. The water coming out is ice-cold, but cristal clear, and even on hot days only the brave risk a dip into the beautiful natural pool at the bottom of the waterfall. 

Difficulty:

  easy /medium – 9 km approx. The Pileta Cave visit, is a short walk, but you need good shoes and be aware it might be a bit slippery inside the cave. To the Hundidero Cave there is a steep path with some steps, and to The Cueva del Gato we walk on a lovely almost flat path along the river.
