La Sima de las Palomas and Cabezo Gordo await the visit of hundreds of people. (05/07/2018)

The Mayor of Torre Pacheco, Antonio León, accompanied by the Councilor for Tourism Rosalía Rosique, wanted to invite residents of Torre Pacheco and visitors to enjoy and learn first hand, the environmental wealth of our town.

There are very few occasions in which the Sima de las Palomas opens its doors to show all its wealth from the hand of the archaeologists who work during the summer in the official Excavation Campaign of the Field School "Sima de las Palomas Gordo "of the Prehistory and Paleoanthropology of the Quaternary of the Region of Murcia.

Next Sunday, July 29 and throughout the morning those who approach the Cabezo Gordo can visit the Cueva del Agua, where you can see a large mining gallery, and a natural lake where water is filtered in the interior of the mountain;

You can also enter the Sima de las Palomas, where you go back more than 50,000 years, to discover our origins and learn more about the Homo Neanderthalensis;

In addition, in the visit to the Interpretation Center, in the Cave of the Foot of the Giant, videos will be projected that explain the different theories about the disappearance of the Homo Neandethalensis and if it really became extinct.

Next Sunday, July 29, the Open Doors Day "Sima de las Palomas" is held, from 9.00 to 14.00 hours, an activity whose cost is € 3, which requires prior registration.
