Explore its main attraction, the spectacular Cave of Wonders (La Gruta de las Maravillas). A source of inexhaustible beauty, forged by time on the nature, by the fusion of simple water and stone elements has created a strange, subterranean landscape which fires the imagination. Its 12 caverns contain long corridors, stalactites and stalagmites arranged in wonderful patterns, and stunning underground lagoons. Discovered at the end of the 19th century, it was in 1914 when is opened to the public as the first tourist Cave of Spain.

The Museum of Iberian Ham is a must to visit. Through its seven rooms you will discover, little by little, our protagonist: the pig. You will get to know the process of upbringing, his life in the field, his power, killing traditional and industrial, healing and development process, as well as the process of maturation in cellar. All this in an enjoyable and educational way through audiovisual media: panels and projections which, with the Guide's explanations, give support and clarification of queries that could be formulated. We won´t come back to Seville without tasting the delicious Iberian Ham.
