Le Gouffre de Proumeyssac, Audrix

4.1
#1 of 14 in Nature in Dordogne
Cave Nature / Park
Called the crystal cathedral, Le Gouffre de Proumeyssac is a cavern filled with intricate crystal formations alongside breathtaking stalactites and stalagmites.

Enter the cavern via tunnel--or, for a fee, you can be lowered into it in a basket, just like the early explorers. Try to catch the dramatic light and music show that focuses on some of the amazing formations, which are nicknamed the waterfall, siren, jellyfish, and octopus.

  • Very interesting tour, a fun guide making the visit even more enjoyable. The chasm is absolutely gorgeous with an impressive history. The Park is also very relaxing and educational for children.

  • We took the gondola to go down. This is worth a visit and remains impressive. Mid height, the gondola stop and swivel 360 degrees to take full advantage of the abyss.

  • There is no other magical place like the Crystal Cathedral of Gouffre de Proumeyssac. Words will never describe it; just go.
  • Beautiful. Very odd "tour"
  • As a short excursion this is great, especially for the kids. Neat, tidy and well presented. Definitely worth booking in advance as you skip the queue to the cashier. The thought that during medieval times bandits robbed travellers and dropped them through the natural entrance is rather unpleasant, no wonder it had a dark reputation. Well worth a visit.
  • Nice lightshow added to the visit!
