La Cova de la Remígia
The Valltorta caves open to the public are in mountainous areas not always easy to reach. Visitors should wear comfortable clothes suitable for the weather and footwear for mountain walking, and take sun protection, a hat and water.
The museum is in the countryside more than one kilometre from Tírig, so visitors should take water and food. There is a coffee machine and a beverage machine at the museum.
In Tírig there is a restaurant serving meals and a bar. Visitors willing to travel further afield can go to other towns not far from the museum: Sant Mateu, Albocàsser, Catí, La Salzadella and Les Coves de Vinromà.
Valltorta Museum is accessible to persons with reduced mobility.
Numbers of visitors are limited and visits to caves should be booked in advance.
The caves are situated in natural settings of great cultural, scenic and ecological value that may be dangerous at time so visitors must always follow wardens' instructions. Failure to do so is the sole responsibility of the offenders.
Only enclosed, suitably prepared caves are open to the public, always with wardens present. Caves can only be visited with a guide.
Touching or wetting the paintings is strictly forbidden.
Visitors may not stray beyond the paths or leave any litter. Smoking is prohibited in caves.
Pets are allowed in the caves providing they are on a lead and kept under control by their owners. Owners are responsible for their pets' behaviour and must collect any waste they leave.
