Artá caves are located in the Cap Vermell, on the coast of the municipality of Capdepera, surrounded by mountains that rise above the sea. These caves have been visited since ancient times and it is believed to have been inhabited by the early residents of the island.

They were rediscovered in the nineteenth century by the French geologist Edouard Martel, hired by the Archduke Luis Salvador, due to his interest about Majorcan caves.

Caves of Arta are large and its entry, full of stalactites hanging from a large vault, impresses the visitor. You can visit on a guided tour that lasts about 40 minutes and visitors can see one of the world's most impressive stalagmites, with 22 meters high.
