Cuevas del Canelobre

Canalobre Caves are located about 23km north of Alicante in Busot, a small village nestled on a hill beneath the ruins of a 12th century Moorish castle. The entrance to the caves is at 700m altitude on the northern slope of a mountain ridge called Cabezo de Oro (golden head) and they are one of the highest domed caves in the whole of Spain. In addition, inside the caves massive chamber, the acoustics are so good that concerts and folk festivals are held on the erected stage inside. 

Cuevas del Canelobre

The caves are open all year and can only be visited as part of a guided tour. Also they do not close for siesta so the tour can make an ideal midday activity to escape the heat of the Spanish sun. But remember to take warm clothing with you as the inside of the caves can be very cold!
