See where the Ancient Greek demi-god rested before undertaking his 11th labor at Hercules Cave, a subterranean land of history and myth. The grotto has been formed by erosion and by human hand, with Berbers cutting chunks from the walls to make millstones. Today, the cave's atmospheric illumination creates an evocative environment in which to learn about the myths and history surrounding the site. One of two entries to the cave, the sea entrance has been named the "Map of Africa," thought to have been carved out by the Phoenicians to represent the continent when seen from the water.

Hercules Cave reviews
Not a very special place to visit. We come with a tour from the cruise. Some people also arrive here via hop-on hop-off bus.

Super cool spot. Feels like you can come there for an hour or spend a whole day wondering these ancient caves. View is impeccable, air is nice and crispy and the cave formation is a wonderous feeling in itself. Visit this place if you are close by and enjoy what it has to offer.
You feel the sens of very old culture . A dollar to get in . Friendly staff especially with photographers. Nice breezy feeling inside . Take look at my photos you LL find that I had really great time shooting here . The sunset is perfect show from the head of Hercules. Coffee shop and food around the cave . Easy park . Make sure you enjoy your self .
