Welcome to Artenara

In Artenara, it is all about caves. People live in caves, the restaurants are in caves, the town museum occupies a series of caves and if you want to spend the night in the area, you can even sleep in a casa rural based – you guessed it – in a cave. Check out www.artenatur.com for accommodation options. The sleepy town is overlooked by the Corazón de Jesus, a Rio-style (albeit much smaller) statue of Christ, arms outstretched.
