Cornavaques cave is located in the Range of Sant Vicenç, next to the Range of Cornavaques.

It’s one of the most spectacular caves of Mallorca, an unimaginable paradise, a myriad of fascinating and huge formations (some of them unique in the island!) within an authentic natural museum. Ceilings and walls leave us baffled, you’ve never seen anything like this!

The splendor and beauty of the cave contrasts with its small entrance and its location, hidden among weeds. We’ll reach its mysterious entrance after a hard hiking tour and we even have to climb to do the full visit. The tour in this cavity will transport us to a totally amazing world, a magical and surprising place that we’ll never forget.
