The presence of numerous peaks (150 of which are over 1,000 metres high) is highly prized by climbers and fans of other adventure sports. Mountain ranges such as the Sierra Espuña, Revolcadores, the Pico de El Almorchón, those around Cartagena or the Pico del Buitre are some of the most popular for such activities.
The Region of Murcia also offers a host of options for caving enthusiasts. In the interior of its many caves and chasms there are interesting examples of pre-historic rock art. The Cueva del Puerto cave in Calasparra, the Sima Destapada chasm in Isla Plana or the La Cueva de La Serreta cave in Cieza, are just some of the Region of Murcia's underground treasures. Caves can be found both on the coast and in the interior and offer a variety of difficulty ratings so that novices and experienced speleologists alike can discover the interior of some of the region's different catalogued caves.
