  • Very good access, the site is very nice. The many steps that descend into the cave to challenge us, but instead downstairs is superb. The guide can actually be a little too much with his voice that carries and would gladly have a role in a movie! The return train is nice but a little direct can be. I recommend this is a good exit

  • Very nice cave rich in minerals with a lot of diversity. A passionate guide, visit adapted to all ages (do not take strollers!) Small flat bit of memory in relation to the cave

  • Definitely worth a visit. Friendly and helpful staff.
  • Well worth a visit. Walk approx 1km underground through various grotto sections. Note- you are not allowed to take photos, which is fine by most people except the arrogant Dutchman who took no notice despite being told by the guide about a dozen times
  • Beautiful cave with amazing concretions. The place is well developed and very friendly staff. The explanations are clear. Special mention for the return by train! To complete the visit the place has 2 discovery walks. Not to be missed!

  • Cave beautiful even if we would like the visit be longer (1 km anyway). The guide was great humour in its interventions. Very tuned to questions and we feel in his answers that he is passionate. The site around is very beautiful and can do walks on foot.

  • Visit monotonous. The guide seemed to recite a lesson. The cave is beautiful but it looks more like a lure to tourists than to a true natural cave. Even if the cave was covered with concrete water happens to find accommodation on platforms, should be closed shoes and a pair of sneakers to spare. Fortunately, my camera was not good enough to take the cables that criss-cross the cave extensively about totally messy way. Despite all its problems the cave in it even is very beautiful, but it should be exploited to better meet its ecosystem. This is my personal opinion, other people seemed to like the visit.
