A highly recommended attraction for your holidays in Mallorca is the Genova Caves, which includes a tasting of Mallorcan tapas in the restaurant next to the cave that bears the same name.
What are the caves of Genova like?
The Caves of Genova, located in the residential neighborhood of Genova, were accidentally discovered in 1906 while the locals were digging to make a water well.
Like other caverns and caves that exist in different places in Mallorca, these are series of galleries and corridors sculpted by the groundwater in the calcareous rocks of the subsoil.
On a guided tour of about a kilometer in length, you can descend up to 36 meters underground while the guide tells you the history and peculiarities of the cave.
During the visit to the caves, you will be able to appreciate the natural beauty of the galleries and corridors. The erosive effect of the water gave the calcareous stone curious shapes, making the cave look like a museum of natural art.
With a magical environment enhanced thanks to a wonderful audiovisual show, tunnels, columns, pools of water and domed domes make up a stunning set that will fill you with admiration.
The Caves of Genova are located near Palma, the capital. The guided tour of about 20 minutes will make you travel to ancient times when our ancestors used caves as a refuge and lived in them.
After doing the guided tour you will be able to enjoy the gastronomic offer of the Ses Coves restaurant in Genova, managed by a family of renowned restaurateurs.

During the tasting, you can have a drink of your choice between wine, beer, soft drinks, and water.
