Our History

The Hams Caves are 10 million years old, but mankind has only been able to enjoy their beauty since they were discovered in 1905 by the speleologist Pedro Caldentey Santandreu (1886-1950) while he was digging for onyx, a precious stone abundant in the region.

In 1910 he produced electricity to illuminate the cave before electric lighting had reached the village of Porto Cristo. Using a water mill, a dynamo and a water tank, he generated 16 hours of electric current to enable visits to the caves.

 

The round cave

This vast open area includes a spectacular botanical garden, verdant and full of life, with many species of free-flying birds that are native to the island of Majorca.

This is a special micro-climate, whose natural temperature is below that of the exterior, with its own particular vegetation.

Millions of years ago, this underground cave was closed in.

 

The blue cave

In the Blue cave, with its spectacular new blue lighting using cutting edge led technology, you can enjoy the educational documentary “Discovering the past”, the history of Majorca, its first inhabitants, the formation of the Hams caves and their discovery.

You can admire Samson’s pillars, the plains of Fra Mauro and the Pit of hell, where, in a natural auditorium, we will present “Genesis, the history of life”, a frenzied time lapse from the Big Bang to the present day, projected on a vast scale onto the very rock-face of the cave.

 

The classic cave

Situated in Porto Cristo – Mallorca, they are renowned throughout the world for their peculiar fish-hook shaped formations, Hams in Mallorquine.

The Main Cave, is made up of 12 galleries. On the underground Lake, the Sea of Venice a Musical Show is presented.

The Caves are one of Majorca’s main tourist attractions.
