Le Gouffre de Proumeyssac, Audrix

(4/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Saw the photos on brochures we have necessarily been attracted by such a spectacle. The visit starts with a sound and light which allows you to discover the small Gulf gradually, but the rest is profit. The visit is fast, must hurry without taking the time to admire, you must watch a video in an exceptional site (ridiculous), then second sound and light which is nothing but to waste time to break that could have to observe. Do not talk about their porcelain figurine that spoils the chasm for sale to tourists, you really feel that is to make a profit. Really shame to spoil an exceptional site.

  • 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.
  • Impressive abyss and arrival by gondola from the top brings cachet to the visitors inside but also to those outside the basket. Downside: damage to a 2nd play of light when the visitor is down because we actually again see the chasm in a different way but we see above all the other visitors who have arrived and for them at the top, shame to see visitors in the middle of that chasm. So, to do from the start to be in the first visit.

  • Majestic site and a set of effective design: sound and light sculpent the edge and value the work of calcification by rainwater for thousands of years. Nacelle impressive even if the fare is a bit dirty. This visit is unavoidable.

  • Very nice place, very impressive. The visit is super nice and the surroundings of the chasms are arranged for children. Negative point: the journey in the cave is not suitable for young children (-6 years) and parents with bag os a "door baby". What is unfortunate is that the cashier nor the guide have warned us.

  • Very nice location with impressive gouffre. Good induction loop in EN during the tour. Multilingual information boards but the other presentations etc. only French-speaking.
