Visit Cueva Sima de La Serreta: World Heritage

Cave Sima de La Serreta Cueva Sima de la Serreta is a cave located between the municipalities of Cieza and Calasparra. The 16 kilometers separating Cieza from the cave are perfectly signaled, so getting there is easy. Before arriving at the cave, there are spectacular views of the Segura River and the Almadenes Canyon.

The cave is closed, so to visit it you need to join a guided tour (small groups).

Cueva Sima de la Serreta, declared World Heritage by Unesco in 1998, is one of the main caves in the Region of Murcia with its Palaeolithic cave paintings.

The cave is accessed through a narrow stairway. As you go down, this stairway becomes a spiral staircase and the light gets dimmer. The cave has artificial light, with solar panels in the outer balcony.

Inside the cave there are two large panels on which "Schematic Art" paintings restored between 2002 and 2003 are clearly visible. Another interesting aspect of this cave are its rare Roman remains. In time, some of the objects found in the cave, including coins and bracelets, were bought and sold and nowadays they can be seen in the Siyâsa Museum.

As part of the restoration works, the Cieza Town Hall built a large outdoor balcony where visitors can safely see enjoy the Almadenes Canyon at the end of the 1-hour tour.

To book your visit, call the Cieza Tourism Office.
