Coves de Benifallet Benifallet
The Meravelles Caves are the tourist epicenter of the municipality of Benifallet. However, Neolithic remains had already been found in this area, such as the cave station of the Culla Cave, in which two highly stylized, black human figures are represented.
Fragments of pottery and flint utensils have been found in the Aumidiella cave.
But these are not the only caves that the municipality of Benifallet has. There are also the Marigot Cave, the Maravillas Cave , the Cueva del Dos and L'Avenc del Sifó, important for the formations they contain such as stalactites and stalagmites. The set of all these caves is called the Benifallet caves.
In addition, in the municipal term we find two historical towns. One from the 7th century BC in which a large quantity of Phoenician pottery has been found. The other is from the Iberian period and has a wall 3m high and 4m wide that is called Castellot de la Roca Roja. This town can be visited, since it is a museum with panels so that the visitor can take a tour.
The Meravelles Caves
One of the best-known tourist options throughout the territory, formed by a set of spectacular formations of very varied structures such as: stalactites, stalagmites, columns, castings, flags, macaroni and the large number of eccentrics that seem to disobey the law of gravity.
