The impressive caves or grottoes of Artá are located in a cliff face with an imposing entrance facing the sea. The caves are very large and full of stalactites and stalagmites. It is said to be home to one of the largest stalagmites in the world, 22 metres high.
The caves of Artá are located on the coast at Canyamel, to be more precise in the cliff face of Cap Vermell (the “red cape”), surrounded by steep hills that tower above the sea. The caves have been frequented since ancient times and it is believed that they were inhabited by some of the very first residents on the island. The man cave is quite enormous and just the entrance area full of stalactites hanging from a huge natural arch is enough to astonish any visitor.
The guided tour takes about 40 minutes and includes a view of one of the most impressive stalagmites in the world with a height of about 22 metres.
