Detailed description

The history of Mallorca´s famous Dragon Caves

  • The Cuevas del Drach were already known about in 1338, which is in the Middle Ages. The former governor of the island and at the same time mayor of Manacor immortalised himself with an inscription there
  • In 1632, the term "Drach" was first mentioned in a book by Dameto in his work "Historia del Reino de Mallorca", in English: "History of the Kingdom of Mallorca"
  • Geographically, the caves could be found first on a map of Mallorca made by Cardinal Despuig in 1784
  • In 1880, the caves were examined by the researcher and cartographer M.F. Will and sixteen years later, Edouard Martel explored the caves again, discovering further caves and also the subterranean lake, which have beared his name since then
  • Between 1922-1935, the caves were prepared for visitors and constantly renewed
  • The concert and the light show were introduced in 1935, designed by the Catalan engineer C. Buigas, which imitate a sunrise over the lake

The visit to the Drach caves: At the beginning of the approximately one-hour tour, when entering the caves, you can see the "flag", a special rock formation, whose curved pattern gives the impression of a flag blowing in the breeze. On the sightseeing tour through the caves, you will pass the "Baths of Diana", which look more like something you'd expect to see on a Caribbean beach than in a Mediterranean cave world Then it's off to the "Little Lake" with the "Monte Nevado" which means snow-capped mountain, a formation which looks a lot like a snow-covered mountain.

The ceilings of the caves are dotted with long stalactites, which are dripping stones that grow about one centimetre every 100 years. The absolute highlight of the visit is, however, hidden in the depths of the caves: a boat trip across Lake Martel, the largest underground lake in Europe. To round off the surreal experience, the boats are accompanied by a 10-minute live classical concert, enabling the visitors to enjoy the fascination of the underground world with the musical harmony of a cello, a pianoforte and two violins. But that´s not all! Special light effects imitate a beautiful sunrise over the lake.

The Drach Cave Tour ends with an unforgettable concert and light show. For those who are afraid of water, there is also the possibility to cross the lake over a bridge and enjoy the music as well as the lights from there. The unique combination of nature, music as well as visual effects make a visit to the Cuevas del Drach an unforgettable experience for the whole family.

the caves are beautiful but too crowded. The visit to the pearls could be avoided, its just wasting of time. A commercial excursion.

Gorgeous but crowded

It was overall a nice experience, specially the litte concert and the boat trip. The caves were also gorgeous, but too crowded so that you couldnt enjoy the experience a 100%.

Great trip to the Cuevas del Drach

Very nice trip and a must of every Mallorca holidays. Great trip and a great contrast to the caves that we know from Germany. Especially the small boat ride and the classical concert we loved it!

Toller Ausflug zu den Cuevas del Drach

Sehr schöner Ausflug und ein Muss eines jeden Mallorcaurlaubs. Toller Ausflug und ein großer Unterschied zu den Tropfsteinhöhlen die man aus Deutschland kennt. Vor allem die kleine Bootsfahrt und das klassische Konzert hat uns super gefallen!

Wonderful, many people, a bit pricey

Valuing the caves, very interesting and mostly enjoyable visit. There were many people, clearly well as all the attractions on the island, the caves were also very busy. The best, the boat ride! We want to come again out of season

Maravilloso, mucha gente, un poco caro

Valorando las cuevas, muy interesante y sobre todo agradable visita.

Habia mucha gente, claramente asi como todas las atracciones en la isla, las cuevas tambien estaban muy concurridas.

Lo mejor, el paseo en barco!

Queremos volver otra vez fuera de la temporada
