RINCON DE LA VICTORIA’S Cuevas del Tesoro has always been valued locally for its geological, anthropological and artistic content.
However, it is one of the great unknowns of the province, and until recently has not received the recognition it deserves.
This year however, visitors have increased with around 3,000 more than last year, thanks in part to its promotion at various tourism fairs through the Association for the Promotion of Tourism Axarquia (APTA), and locally by providing information through the Office of Tourism and the municipality’s hotels.
The cave is one of only three of marine origin known in the world to show the remains of stone, bone, and ceramic.
It was formed during the Jurassic era and has great scientific, historical, and cultural interest. Its length is 2,500m of which only 600m are accessible.
