Cueva del Llano, Villaverde, Fuerteventura

The Cueva del Llano (literally Cave of the Plain) is a volcanic tube that has been gradually filled with sediments over the last million years.

The Interpretive Centre and guided tour of the accessible part of the cave offer a fascinating insight into the geology of Fuerteventura and the cave itself.

The cave is home to a unique blind spider-like invertebrate that is found nowhere else on earth.

Analysis of the layers of sediments has revealed Fuerteventura’s climate changes (alternating dry and wet periods) as well as the bones of several extinct animals.

    The cave is closed to protect the “spider” and also because the roof at the entrance has collapsed.
