Le Gouffre de Proumeyssac, Audrix

(950+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful. Very odd "tour"
  • Nice lightshow added to the visit!
  • 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.

  • An extraordinary cave! You take full eyes! Possibility of basket down into the abyss. We did the tour at feet, great. We walk between the stalagmites. Nature is beautiful!
