Que hacer en potes

Esta cueva se abrió al público en 2005, pero en realidad fue descubierta en 1908. Es uno de esos lugares en los que la naturaleza se da un capricho y utiliza sólo el agua para crear deslumbrantes formaciones rocosas. La cueva del Soplao tiene la mayor concentración de estalactitas y estalagmitas “excéntricas” de todo el mundo. Las estalactitas crecen aleatoriamente en todas las direcciones y parecen un bosque de rocas o un arrecife de coral de piedra, un fenómeno inusual que sólo se encuentra en algunas cuevas. Por supuesto, es mucho más bonito verlo en persona. Para ver la cueva, existe la ruta estándar (10,50 euros) que es totalmente accesible para personas con discapacidad. O bien, tiene la ruta Aventura (32€) en la que, con un traje y un casco proporcionados por los guías, puede explorar el interior de la cueva. Esta visita es más cara que la normal, pero dura 2,5 horas y verá muchas más cámaras que no han sido modificadas por la mano del hombre.
Para llegar a la Cueva El Soplao, hay un largo desvío desde la autopista por estrechas carreteras de curvas y luego una caminata que parece interminable, pero ¡merece la pena! En cuanto entras en la cueva, te sientes abrumado. Tenía los ojos como platos. Las vistas son increíbles y se puede ver hasta el Naranjo de Bulnes, la Sierra de Cuera, e incluso dicen que se puede ver el Golfo de Vizcaya si el día está claro.Hay un tren nuevo que cubre los primeros 400 metros de la cueva. En el interior, la temperatura ronda los 12-13ºC y la humedad ronda el 90%, así que asegúrate de llevar calzado cómodo y una chaqueta muy abrigada.

It is a natural room that stands out for the amount of thick formations of whitish stalagmites and pisolites emerging from the ground that, by their figure, gave rise to the name of the gallery. The gallery is 350 meters long and some areas reach 35 meters wide. Its name is due to the large white stalagmites that resemble ghosts in the final areas of the gallery. It had a great use in the early twentieth century as a place of extraction and storage of ore by the miners of the La Florida mine.
Very high gallery that owes its name to its resemblance to a natural forest. The flows and the union of stalactites and stalagmites follow each other everywhere, creating large and varied columns. As in the Cauliflower Gallery, traces of an earthquake can be seen.
Located to the east. It is one of the highest, reaching 30 meters in height. Its length exceeds 160 meters. The mantles of lava flows, the giant stalagmites and the nests of pisolites stand out. Its name is due to the amount of colors that appear in it, because of the variety of salts dissolved in the water.

Surely you already know that the visitable caves are one of the great tourist attractions of Cantabria, being its great icon the Altamira, where you can currently visit the museum and the neocueva.
But there are also other very interesting ones that I have been able to visit in my various trips to Cantabria, which also contain paleolithic art, such as that of El Castillo, in Puente Viesgo, or that of Covalanas, in Ramales de la Victoria, in the Valle del As贸n.
It was discovered in 1908, when in a mining gallery in which they were seen working for the extraction of zinc was opened an intersection that allowed to bring to light the natural gallery, whose existence until then was not known.
But it was not until 1975 when a team of Cantabrian speleologists began to explore the various galleries of the natural cave, reaching the conclusion that it was one of the most spectacular caves known until then in Cantabria.
This Cantabrian cave is so special because it is unusual to find subway networks that combine mines and natural caves, even of such dimensions, since in the case of the Cantabrian cave, the network exceeds 45 kilometers.

Recently they have forbidden to take pictures and video in the interior because although before it was forbidden to use the flash, people did not pay attention and have ended up banning everything, so please, if you go to a cave, museum, etc, do not use the flash, most of the time you do not need it, and you can annoy other visitors.
After this brief explanation, the best I can do is to publish a few pictures of what you can see inside, I am sure that after this you will feel an incredible desire to visit Cantabria.
