  • Used to visit caves, I m expecting to find the same thing in here and finally I was pleasantly surprised with this bridge above the void that the unique visits!

  • Great chasm, very beautiful and impressive! But the visit is done in 15 minutes flat! (without guide, off-season), not much to see. So quite expensive for what it is... And no restaurant on site.

  • The effect at the entrance is rather impressive however it is quickly on the visit will be very short. We spent as much time to wonder if there was something else to see to enjoy the cave. A shame when the admission price is around € 10. As an indication, we spent 45 minutes inside and really no hurry.

  • Spectacular cave. Unesco heritage. 7 Euro entrance. The visit is short, but it really is worth visiting it since it is impressing.

  • The cave is overwhelming, so well worth a visit. There is a large suspension bridge with at the end a glass piece where you can venture to in depth. Outside the deep cave is there are still some locations to visit and you can see different types of crystals. But this is what we have seen in other places more beautiful, so you should especially for the impressive size (the Eiffel Tower fits in the cave). The tours are only with French-speaking guide, but you can listen on translations via interactive devices. You'll get also some light shows on music, but this said me. Our children were slightly too small and therefore had a little too much fright.
