The Carved Cave (Cueva Tallada) is a patrimonial jewel with breathtaking views inside the sea. It’s an excursion in the Valencian community that you cannot miss!
The cave was excavated on the level of the sea. In the beginning of time it was used to extract tosca or grit for the construction of the most singular buildings of Denia, including the castle.
The views are spectacular. The possibility of taking a bathe at the end of the route means that, despite the heat, it is recommended to do this excursion also in Summer.
Cave: About 75 metres wide and 15 metres high, this cave is spectacular. The sea is intensely blue and transparent, which makes the best place to snorkel.
The cave has 5 entrances through which the sea enters, forming small pools of cold water once it does not receive the sun’s rays.
Inside the cave you can go through the quarry and check the shapes that were left after the extraction of the stone. From the outside, you have a spectacular landscape. If the sea is calm you can enjoy the snorkel, seeing a great variety of fish.
