The Caves of Sorbas, Cuevas de Sorbas, are located in the Gypsum Karst Natural Park of Sorbas, a landscape of surface and underground rock formations, which was declared a Natural Area of Protection 1989.
The caves can be visited on guided excursions and offer a thrilling destination for a day trip in Almeria.
Gypsum Karst Caves - are very rare, formations are always very young in geological terms, as the mineral Gypsum is quite soluble and rain water will revert the development process very rapidly.
Here in Sorbas, the distinct lack of rainfall has significantly reduced gypsum degradation making Sorbas Caves one of the best preserved Gypsum Karst sites in the world.
An amalgamation of caves and underground channels covering an area of around fifty kilometres, the surface of the terrain displays a multitude of distinctive sinkholes which form a natural entrance to some of the chambers and tunnels.
For centuries mineral water has been slowly dripping from the overhead rocks forming what we know as stalactites, which hang from the cave ceiling, it is from these drips on contact with the cavern floor that the stalagmites rock formations have grown vertically from the ground.
Where the stalactites and stalagmites meet, they have form cohesive columns of rock blocking off cavities holding internal gypsum crystal formations, like treasure caves.
Inside the Cuevas de Sorbas the marvels of the gypsum crystals, stalactites and stalagmites, that are manifested in abundance, are revealed. This is a subterranean world and one of the geological jewels of Andalucia.
Of the known caverns, the Cueva del Agua is the largest one, being approximately eight kilometres in size, and the Cueva de Covadura is the deepest, reaching a depth of one hundred and twenty metres. However, the Cueva del Yeso and the Cueva del Tesoro, the Gypsum Cave and the Treasure Cave, are by far the most spectacular.
Guided tours offer access to the caves, the Gypsum Cave can be visited on both the Simple Tour and the Combined Tour and the Treasure Cave exclusively on the Technical Tour.
There are three guided tours available to the general public, all of which have to be pre booked and are available in English.
Equipment is supplied and included within the price.

The Alhambra was a palace, a fortress and a citadel; the residence of the Nasrid Sultans and top government officials, court servants and the royal guard.
The Alhambra was built on top of the Sabikah Hill, which cuts into a fertile valley and stands as the last bastion of the Sierra Nevada mountains, in front of Albaycin and Sacromonte, between the Darro and Genil rivers.
Arab writers compared Granada, which is surrounded by mountains, to a crown, with the diadem of the Alhambra on top.
The history of the buildings of the Alhambra is closely related to that of the buildings of the city of Granada. There are archaeological documents that testify the successive superposition of Iberian, Roman, and Muslim walls.
The Alhambra today was not built in a single time period. It was progressively constructed, with the addition over time of new buildings that were built in groups like cells, enriching the architectural and urban development of the citadel.
It is the result of an evolutionary process over more than two and a half centuries, during the reign of the Nasrids, and includes structures predating that time as well as important contributions and modifications during the Christian era, which continues to this day.
