Although the Altamira Cave is one of the most emblematic of the Cantabrian coast, there are a large number of archaeological sites of great historical importance in this community. One of them is El Soplao Cave, located in the Sierra de Arnero, and which is considered unique worldwide for the geological forms that it houses inside.

El Soplao Cave is located in the town of Comillas in Cantabria. It has a total length of 20 kilometers, however only 4 of them are open to the public. It was discovered accidentally in 1908, but was later used for mining, an activity that had been abandoned before several speleologists discovered its geological value.

If there is one thing that makes El Soplao cave unique, it is all the treasures it holds inside. Thousands of tourists have been able to enjoy the play of light and the different architectural structures found there, which offer a spectacle both visually and sonorously.
