This caves stand out from the rest thanks to the richness of their calcareous deposits in the shape of stalactites and stalagmites. They are located in the south slope of the mountain of Sant Miquel (Serra de Tramuntana), within the municipality of Campanet.
They develop approximately 50 metres under the surface, creating an empty space of about 16000 m³. The tour, which is about 40 minutes long, goes through the different galleries and rooms, some of which contain small accumulations of water.
Apart from their natural ornamentation, scientifics and naturalists have also been attracted by other aspects. For example, during the preparation works of the caves, fossil remains from Myotragus balearicus (a species of endemic bovid from Mallorca and Menorca) were found. This species became extinct 4000 years ago when human beings arrived on our islands.
These caves have inspired artists such as Casimir Tarrassó, who dedicated a monographic series of oil paintings signed in 1948; and poets such as Bartomeu Guasp i Gelabert, who composed the ode “Coves of Sant Miquel” (1949). These caves have even been used as the set for several films.
