This cave of marine origins is one of the few discovered in the world and the only one in Europe, formed by the action of the sea over the centuries, it is believed that during the Jurassic period. This cave is mainly known by the legend of the existence of a hidden treasure, and although it has never been found officially it is said that that the treasure of the Almoravide royalty was situated inside a cavity.
The Treasure Cave has different areas:
- Area of the cave paintings
In this area we’ll find different remains of cave paintings.
- Area of the Eagle
It has an eagle-shaped rock formation.
- Area of Noctiluca
In here is the temple to the Mediterranean lunar goddess Noctiluca where they found remains of ashes of sacrificed animals in her honour. This Phoenician goddess has a monument on the Promenade of Rincon de la Victoria.
- Area of the Volcan
The deepest area of the cave in which we’ll notice a slight increase of the temperature.
- Area of the Lakes
It has naturally formed lakes and it’s the largest of them all.
The legend says that a great treasure was hidden inside this cave, although officially they only found 6 golden coins inside a ceramic oil lamp.
Antonio de la Nari, from Switzerland, spent 30 years looking for this treasure and opening galleries with dynamite...he died in 1847 caused by one of the explosions, and became part of the legend of the Treasure Cave.
