Directions to Cuevas de Campanet
The Campanet Caves are an underground complex of caves, small lakes and complex limestone formations in the northern foothills of the Tramuntana mountains of Mallorca. The caves were discovered in 1945 by workers searching for a new water source for irrigation. It was well known that a draught of fresh air came from a 15cm hole in the ground, possibly indicating the presence of an underground stream. The hole was widened and man entered the caves for the first time. After some improvements were made, the caves were opened to the public in November 1948.
It's estimated that this work of nature has been about 4 million years in the making and, of course, it's a work in progress. The action of water on the ancient limestone has created a series of passages, chambers and brilliantly clear pools, all richly decorated with an array of stalagmites and stalactites.
The tour of the caves, conducted by multi-lingual guides, takes around 40 minutes. The more famous caves on the East coast attract hordes of visitors, but the Campanet Caves are less well known and your visit will likely be a more relaxed and pleasant experience. There's easy parking and a convenient bar/café offers refreshment and beautiful views of the Sant Miquel valley.
Opening hours from April through September are 10:00 to 18:00, and from October through March 10:00 to 17:00.
