Full description
Walk, climb and crawl the galleries of the gypsum mineral natural cave in Sorbas and admire the reflection of crystals when they receive the light from your helmet. Marvel the effect water erosion and the passage of time have had on the plaster rock. Explore the Yeso Cave with a specialized guide. The Barranco del Infierno Cave, as it is also known, was formed thousands of years ago and was the first cave complex to be discovered. See first-hand the effect of water on the shaping of rocks. The underground karst system of Sorbas collects rain and floodwater and drains it through the galleries.

The activity was interesting. For my taste, they would have to warn you beforehand that you will have to crawl or bend down to be able to do it, since you get there and you are a bit surprised by the average difficulty of the cave. They only advise you to wear comfortable shoes.
