During the tour, along a fully equipped path to allow most people to visit it, three topics are addressed :

  • the unusual geology of a rather dry cave;
  • a prehistoric habitation;
  • the origins and mythology of the Basque people according to anthropologist José-Miguel de Barandiaran.

You will have free access to our museum to discover Human evolution from prehistory to the present day and to the megalithic park explaining what megalithism in the Basque Country is.
