Drach Caves (Coves del Drac)

Nearby: Porto Cristo - Manacor

15 minutes walk south of the centre of Porto Cristo you'll find the spectacular Coves del Drac (Cuevas del Drach). Although known locally for hundreds of years it was Ludwig Salvador, an Austrian Arch Duke, who first mapped the caves in the late 19th century. The caves are 2km deep and consist of 4 humongous limestone chambers the last of which houses one of the largest subterranean lakes in the world. It is on this lake that, during the hour long tour, you can witness the strangely unsettling site of musicians drifting by on gondolas playing harmoniums, of all things. Stalagtites and stalagmites abound, all very professionaly lit with a multitude of multi coloured lights that add to the magical unearthly atmosphere.

If, after this visit, you’re not all caved out, 20 minutes down the road you’ll find the amusingly named Coves de Hams (Cuevas del Hams) which are smaller than the Drach caves but house similarly floating musicians.
