One of the best known stories tells of a young fisherman who ventured into the cave in search of remedies for his ailing mother. The witch received him kindly and provided him with the necessary herbs to cure his mother. However, she warned the young man not to tell anyone about his encounter in the cave.

How to get to the cave of light

A beautiful place worth visiting both in summer and winter. We leave San Mateo in the direction of Cala Aubarca Once we reach the crossroads to go down to Cala Aubarca, we continue along the cliffs, always on a wide path, which you can't miss. The path becomes narrower and narrower until you reach a small crossroads where you can turn left and take the route to Portitxol or go down to the Cueva de la Luz (Cave of Light). You pass by a beautiful ruined house and cross the old fields and areas where you can see the abundance of water that existed in times gone by. The path is actually quite easy to follow because to get to the cave you have to go down to the sea and there are not many options. The cave is located on a cape. At the top of the cape there is an ancient spring with a basin where the water was collected. From the basin, to get to the cave you have to be careful, just like in the cave, where, with care, you can reach the water. The cave connects to the open sea, from where the light pours in. It is usually full of fish.
