Pozo Azul- A Never-ending Cave?
Friday, April 29, 2022 @ 3:14 PM

 

One of the best plans to enjoy free time is to make a getaway to the countryside. Contact with nature greatly reduces stress and anxiety, while strengthening the immune system and increasing self-esteem and the ability to concentrate. In Spain, there are many spots that stand out for their great beauty, and one of the most interesting is the Pozo Azul, a spring with turquoise blue waters.

 

 

El Pozo Azul is located in the town of Covanera, in the province of Burgos, south of the Cantabrian Mountains. It is one of the main tourist attractions of the Rudrón Valley. The cave is submerged under the mountain, so it is a very popular place for cave divers from all over the world.

So far, 13 kilometres of the tunnel have been discovered, and experts believe (although they have not yet been able to prove it) that it is the longest underwater cave in all of Spain. It was in the middle of the 20th century when they began to explore the Pozo Azul.

 

 

During the spring and summer months, many residents of the area and visitors take advantage of the cold and crystal clear waters of the Pozo Azul to cool off.

Especially noteworthy is the high quality of the waters, and a good example of its purity is the trout that live in the spring. The temperature of the waters does not vary throughout the year, and always ranges between nine and eleven degrees. So very refreshing!

Getting to the Pozo Azul is very simple since there is a route that starts from the town of Covanera. The spring has a diameter of eight meters and a depth of ten meters. In addition, it has several underwater caves whose access is reserved for cave diving professionals.

Another unusual thing about this place is the species of aquatic fauna that have been found since the mid-20th century, accredited by the National Museum of Natural Sciences in 1983.

Covanera is a small town in Burgos, with just 20 inhabitants, which belongs to the municipality of Tubilla del Agua. Its most important monument is the Church of Santa María.

Half an hour by car is Poza de la Sal, one of the most beautiful villages in Burgos. A visit to the Salinas Interpretation Center, which is located in the old Administration House of the Reales Salinas, is essential. It is also interesting to see the Castillo de Los Rojas and the Plaza Nueva.
