The Caves of San José are a popular tourist attraction located in the province of Castellón, Spain. These caves are known for their stunning natural beauty and fascinating geological formations, making them a must-visit destination for travelers.
The San José Caves are situated in the Vall d’Uixó, a picturesque valley in the eastern part of Spain. The caves themselves are over 2,750 meters long, with a depth of around 30 meters. The highlight of the caves is undoubtedly the breathtaking Stalactite Hall, where visitors can marvel at the impressive stalactites and stalagmites that have formed over thousands of years.
A 2,5km long underground river of San José with rocky landscapes maintains the temperature of + 20 degrees Celsius and is considered the longest navigable underground river in Europe. The Caves, which sometimes are called “the heart of the earth” are full of stalactites and stalagmites that you can enjoy during the boat ride as well as some cave drawings left centuries ago. After some reconstructions and light installation in 1920’s, the route became more open to tourists and much safer.
A unique place to visit for sure !


After the caves we will go to Vilafamés, a beautiful town that  joined the official list of Spain’s Most Beautiful Towns in 2015. Vilafames is a town painted in a palate of rustic browns and whitewashed hues with streets filled with history, culture, gastronomy, and relaxing atmosphere. One of the highlights of Vilafamés is its well-preserved old town, which dates back to medieval times. Visitors can stroll through narrow streets lined with ancient stone buildings and admire the town’s impressive castle, which sits atop a hill overlooking the village.
Vilafamés stands out with its Arab origin old town dating back to the 11th century as well as its castle resting on the hill above the city. The castle with an amazing panoramic view was built in the 14th century and was a strategic location during the wars. Rock stone predominates in all of the constructions of the old town, likewise the historical set of Vilafamés is declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 2005. In 1938 some of the old towns was destroyed by warplanes during the Spanish Civil War, however in the 1970’s painters discovered the town, fell in love with it and started to reconstruct it to its current glory.
You can’t miss a visit to this idyllic town with narrow streets and charming houses!
