Sao Vicente Caves & Volcanism Centre Tours

A 30-minute tour of the São Vicente Caves is a uniquely Madeira experience that is not to be missed. Formed by the same volcanic activity that created the island itself, these caves were created by a massive eruption that took place some 890 thousand years ago. Eight tunnels extend more than 1,000 meters, making it the largest system of caves in Madeira. Visitors can weave through the well-lit paths, past transparent pools and incredible stalactites on a unique journey to the interior of the earth.

The Volcanism Centre, located next to the caves, offers visitors a chance to watch the evolution of the caves and the eruption that formed Madeira through unique audiovisual shows. Travelers will also get a multi-media exploration of geology, volcanic activity, the origins of the solar system and the natural history of Madeira, making a trip to the Centre the perfect follow-up to a tour of the caves.

Practical Info

The Caves and the Volcanism Centre are open daily from 10am until 7pm and are located on Sitio do pe do Passo. Tickets cost 8 Euros for adults and 6 Euros for seniors and children between ages 5 and 14.
