The Pertosa Caves (Italian: ''Grotte di Pertosa''), co-officially named Pertosa-Auletta Caves (Italian: ''Grotte di Pertosa-Auletta'') since 2012, are a karst show cave system located in the municipality of Pertosa, in the province of Salerno, Campania, Italy.
They are situated by the eastern side of Alburni mountains, in the locality of Muraglione, 3 km (1.9 mi) in south of Pertosa and close to its railway station. Due to the presence of Tanagro river the caves are rich of water and, after the main entrance, there is an underground lake.
