Las numerosas investigaciones arqueológicas efectuadas en Urdax, en las que se hallaron buriles, hojitas de dorso, raspadores, arpones elaborados con sílex, una aguja de coser de hueso, restos de comida y restos de un enterramiento humano, demuestran que el hombre del Paleolítico que habitó estas tierras, vivió desde hace 10.000 hasta hace 20.000 ó 30.000 años atrás. Las primeras noticias de esta cueva datan de 1808 cuando se utilizó como refugio por personas que huían de las batallas de la guerra de independencia. A partir de 1965, comenzó a ser mencionada como atracción turística, y en la actualidad es propiedad del Ayuntamiento de Urdax, que ha hecho de ellas un lugar atractivo e interesante para el turismo y para los amantes de la naturaleza. cuevasurdax.com/cuevas/ The numerous archaeological investigations carried out in Urdax, in which burins, small back blades, scrapers, harpoons made with flint, a bone sewing needle, food remains and remains of a human burial were found, show that the Paleolithic man who He inhabited these lands, lived from 10,000 to 20,000 or 30,000 years ago.

Las gentes de Urdax pensaban que las cuevas de Ikaburu estaban habitadas por lamias, seres de la mitología vasca similares a las sirenas, que habitan en los ríos. Las lamias se reunían en el Salón de Recepciones que se encuentra nada más entrar en las cuevas. Se piensa que el buen estado de conservación de las cuevas se debe precisamente a que la gente del pueblo no entraba en las cuevas por miedo a las lamias. es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urdax The people of Urdax thought that the Ikaburu caves were inhabited by lamias, beings from Basque mythology similar to mermaids, who inhabit rivers. The lamias used to meet in the Reception Hall which is located just after entering the caves. It is thought that the good state of conservation of the caves is precisely due to the fact that the townspeople did not enter the caves for fear of the lamias.
