CAVE OF SANTA CATALINA
Featuring an attractive environment, this cave is found along the road that leads into the city of Matanzas and to Varadero beach, exactly four kilometres east of the town of Carbonera.
This natural site was declared a National Monument in 1996. It is characterised by eleven kilometres of subterranean galleries and features the most extraordinary secondary formations, especially interesting are the mushrooms, zinolites and aboriginal pictographs.
Nearby, there is another place known as the Cave of the Dead (Cueva del Muerto), right next to the drawbridge of Varadero. It is a cave of great natural and archaeological value, due to the fact that in over eight kilometres of galleries there is ample evidence of pre-Columbian communities and many species of fauna and secondary formations.
