Three caves: Cueva del Ratón (length 30m), Cueva del Cubo (20m) and Cueva del Carro (length 12m). All the caves are archaeological sites.

Cueva del Raton (886) contains Upper Magdalenian levels; Cueva del Cubo has shells, flints and pottery, possibly dated in the Chalcolithic; and Cueva del Carro (887) similarly has shells and pottery. Also in Cueva del Cubo, a rhinoceros molar was found: Dicerorhinus merki Kaup.
