The Cave of Altamira (6/20)

List item

The Cave of Altamira is a cave located in the autonomous community of Cantabria. It’s famous because it features various cave paintings and charcoal drawings which were drawn over 30,000 years ago.

Unfortunately, the original cave is closed for visitors, but a replica, La Neocueva en el Museo de Altamira, can be visited in the National Museum and Research Center of Altamira (which is located right next to the cave).
