NOT TO MISS IN CUEVAS DE SAN MARCOS

MONUMENTS

The most important archaeological site of Cuevas de San Marcos is in Sierra Camorro: The Medina de Belda Site, where the old medieval city settled.

On the other hand, the Cave of Belda brings together a larger number of speleologists each year. The interior contains interesting karst formations, stalactites and stalagmites, and three inland lakes. This cave also denotes the presence of prehistoric settlers thanks to the discovery of some remains.

In the beautiful setting of the town, we can also visit two outstanding civil constructions, the Aceña waterwheel, from the eighteenth century, and Luis Armiñán Bridge, built in 1910.

The Municipal Archaeological Museum helps us to become aware of the great historic and prehistoric heritage of Cuevas de San Marcos. Highlights are the Punic-Roman pieces, a diverse collection of Hispano-Muslim and Visigoth ceramic materials.

In the town center stands the church of St Mark the Evangelist a part baroque, part neoclassical building built in the seventeenth century and remodeled in the eighteenth century.

Also from the eighteenth century is the chapel of Carmen, small temple that combines Neo-Gothic and neo-classical influences and has a unique hexagonal shrine.
