The cave Cuevona is a huge through cave which was used as a road tunnel. The road built through the cave is the only way to reach the small town Cuevas de Aqua. The road through the cave is about 250 m long and rather narrow, the cave is lighted by orange road lights. Obviously there is not enough time to see the cave when just driving through, so we recommend a walk. Unfortunately there is no sidewalk, so be careful with the traffic. Although this road is only leading to one small village there are cars, bicyclists and even lorries.
