Dan-yr-Ogof Caves

One of many cave systems in Brecon Beacons National Park, the Dan-yr-Ogof Caves are an 11 mile (17km) cave system about 15 miles (24km) southwest of Brecon. Only the first portion of the system is open to the public, but the spectacular limestone rock formations of the three available caves, the Dan yr Ogof Showcave, the Cathedral Showcave and the Bone Cave, mustn't be missed. Formed 315 million years ago, the formations include the vertical stalagtites and stalagmites, and also rare helectites, which grow sideways. The nearby National Showcaves Centre for Wales has a dinosaur park with more than 50 life-size statues, an Iron Age farm, and a museum.
