The rocks which make up the Cueva de Ambrosio (Ambrosio Cave) go back two million years. However, this cave was not discovered by the white man until 1961 in Varadero, Cuba.


Following the Southern highway, 500 meters past the Amigo Varadero Club, you will find a pictorial discovery of considerable importance, the archeological treasure of Varadero.

The cave contains, across its 300 meters, around 47 Pre-Columbian paintings. The best-preserved can be seen in the Claraboyas Room, its most emblematic room.

The former inhabitants of the island left in the cave a testimony to some parts of their lives by using black and red colours, tracing with them concentric circles, complemented by solar light which filters through the cracks, and which illuminates the inside walls.

Similar drawings have been found in some parts of Isla de la Juventud. This last point would be wise to take into account, since it could provide eye-opening clues concerning its meaning.

Years later, the Ambrosio Cave became a settlement, first by Pre-Columbian natives and, later on, by runaway slaves and pirates.
