Andalusia Sights

Cueva de la Pileta (Pileta Cave)

  • Historic District/Site

Updated 06/07/2014

Fodor's Review

At this prehistoric site, 20 km (12 miles) west of Ronda, a Spanish guide (who speaks some English) will hand you a paraffin lamp and lead you on a roughly 60-minute walk that reveals prehistoric wall paintings of bison, deer, and horses outlined in black, red, and ocher. One highlight is the Cámara del Pescado (Chamber of the Fish), whose drawing of a huge fish is thought to be 15,000 years old. Tours take place whenever 25 people have accumulated.
