Museo Altamira

Park and landscape

Thanks to its privileged hilltop site, visitors can enjoy spectacular scenery at the Museum of Altamira. Walking in the grounds, they can discover the landscape of the Palaeolithic age, and enjoy the magnificent views of the current landscape.

In addition to this, the first building for the management of the cave, built in 1924, remains, together with the two pavilions that formed the site of the museum in the 1970s. Close to these buildings there is also a monument created by the sculptor Julio López Hernández in commemoration of the caves discoverer, Marcelino Sanz de Sautuola.
