Well worth visiting in addition to El Castillo cave. (see full review for that particular cave) I would thoroughly recommend Cueva Las Monedas to all visitors - especially those visiting Altamira. With the Puente Viesgo cave complex visitors can experience real caves, which you will...More

Be prepared for slippery stairs and pathways. Although they said that it would be cold in the caves, I found it to be warm and humid. The guide was very informed about the various pictures found in the small galleries. The drawings were so clear...More

It's easy to visit El Castillo and Monedas in one day. Booked the two an hour apart, gives enough time for the tour and to walk between the two :)
