Cueva Pintada (which is the Spanish expression for Painted Cave) was discovered in 1873 by Jose Ramos Orihuela, who named it this way due to the paintings on the cave walls. The cave was opened to the public between 1972 and 1982, but since the paintings soon started to decay, the access of visitors was forbidden.
