Fodor's Review

Some 4 km (2½ miles) above Zuheros along a winding road, the Cueva de los Murciélagos runs for about 2 km (1 mile), although only about half of that expanse is open to the public. The main attractions are the wall paintings dating to the Neolithic Age (6000–3000 BC) and Chalcolithic Age (3000–2000 BC), but excavations have indicated that the cave was inhabited as far back as 35,000 years ago. Items from the Copper and Bronze ages, as well as from the Roman period and the Middle Ages, have also been found here. Visits are by guided tour only and must be booked in advance, by phone or email ([email protected]) or at Calle Nueva 1 in the village.
