Cuevas del Canalobre is a single huge chamber with a length of 150m. It contains many dripstones, some of them looking like a candelabra, which gave the cave its name.
The huge chamber has a good sound, so it is used for concerts and folk festivals. The cave contains a large stage for such events.
The entrance is located high on the slopes of the Cabezón de Oro (Golden Head) in a dry and hot bare karst region, and the vistor has a beautiful view onto the region of Alicante and the Mediterranean Sea. Several paths in the area allow very nice walking tours.
Despite so much favorable facts, there are two drawbacks: the cave is in summer very well visited, there are regular bus trips from the tourist centers at the coast, and it is lighted with coloured light.
