Your Experience

This is your opportunity to walk through history and observe one of the great wonders of nature! See the largest crystal cave and most accessible geode in the world in the mine of El Pilar de Jaravía, Pulpí. With an expert guide by your side, learn how minerals such as iron and lead are extracted here. The remains of these minerals can still be observed in the access galleries.

Once you enter the mine, you will get to see the Giant Geode. It is 8 meters in length and 2 meters in height and is covered by huge translucent gypsum crystals that have formed over the years. What makes the geode unique is a combination of this transparency, size and state of preservation. Follow your guide around the mine and learn about the economic importance of the mine in previous decades, and how the Geode and other crystals were formed.

Towards the end of your tour, you will visit the nearby castle of San Juan de los Terreros, located about 10 minutes by car from the Pilar de Jaravía. Your ticket includes the entrance ticket to the castle, where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the coastline and panoramic views of the town.
