Located 8km northeast of town on the banks of the Río Talgua, the Cuevas de Talgua are notable for the discovery here of a prehistoric burial ground featuring hundreds of skeletons arranged in chambers deep underground. Though the burial ground itself is out of bounds to visitors, the rest of the site has been developed for tourists, with a museum telling the tale of the finds and trails leading through the caves.
