Named the ‘Cuevas del Tesoro’ (Treasure Caves) after a legend that the emperor Tasulin Ibn Al hid gold here in the 7th century. Many treasure hunters have tried their luck over the years including Don Manuel Laza who spent 35 years of his life in the pursuit. Another legend tells that the caves were the prehistoric sanctuary of the moon goddess Noctiluca. Each August a festival of music is held inside the caves.
