Benidoleig is a small farming village with 783 inhabitants located at the foot of the Sierra de Seguili. It is a peaceful village with steep windy streets with views of the surrounding vines and almond and olive trees – the main economic activity of the village.
The Calaveras (skulls) Cave is the attraction of the village. The cave obtained its name from the 12 skulls that were found in its interior when it was discovered in 1768. Cavanilles established that these were the skulls of Moors who had died during earlier explorations of the caves. Bronze and Neolithic remains have also been discovered in the cave. A 400 metres passage inside the cave ends up at an interior lake.
