Le Gouffre de Proumeyssac, Audrix

3.5
#2 of 16 in Nature in Dordogne
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 disappointed just a sinkhole, very expensive for what is to do, one bathroom. in the region there are caves twice better than Domme must see and which is less expensive and really Grand or the chasm of Padirac at least but there I didn't like at all

    Called the Crystal Cathedral by the locals, it is indeed a place to see. For lovers of stalagmites and stalagtites

    Certainly it is a very pretty hole but the price remains high. 8.50 in addition to descend into the abyss in basket (containing 11 people, tight and where one is shy to see all of the abyss), while without this down a little path or a panoramic view. The guide is a little know-how avard and groups goes so to meet 3 groups in the Gulf. We would have liked more explanation and a longer visit for the price...

    The nacelle is really nice! The guides are interesting and the view is breathtaking! Outside of the abyss is well equipped, ideal for families with children

    Nice to see. The animation is quite nice. However it is very frustrating not being able to take a picture.
