4.3/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web
After riding the small train into the Grottes de Lacave, continue your tour of the caves through Tarasque Hall, where rock formations evoke legendary animals. After crossing the Room of the Three Fates and the Snow Room, you'll see the immense stone called Our Lady of Lacave. When you reach the Hall of the Great Dome, the lakes become more numerous and the formations become more curious: A column looks like the legs of spiders, for example. The Mirage room offers the breathtaking spectacle of a mysterious underwater city. The greatest treasure of all is the Wonderland room, lit by dramatic black lights that animate it to appear like a living being.

  • It starts with a ride of a few minutes in a small train (not very comfortable, but it's for a good cause). The guide, great always has a word for fun group. He takes us through dark corridors in large beautiful rooms with each one of the curiosities of nature the tour takes between 1:15 and 1:30, we see no time go visit if you are in the area!

  • A small train which brings you to the heart of the mountain and hop we go for a journey to the center of the Earth. A journey full of surprise and beauty. I suggest good shoe, in fact you will walk 3km and up 536 steps and so down 536 steps, no panic makes it very bien☺. The photos are allowed without flash.

  • After a few minutes in a little train that goes into the Hill, you will discover a succession of superb and well preserved rooms. Of course, a few unscrupulous individuals have broken a few small stalactites, but in recent years barriers protect the site. The visit has two parts, the first more easy, includes beautiful rooms but it is in the second part you will find the most beautiful rooms. If you have some difficulties to move, you can ignore the first part and focus on the second. Approximately 1.5 km, and about 460 markets up or down. When title I need to save this place, I want to talk about the fact that sites such as two Lascaux or other caves of wonders are plenty of shade to this little gem. Do not hesitate to visit this succession of rooms, to help because, if I have understood correctly, this site may not stay open, for lack of visitors. We went there in October, so out of season, and had the chance to guide a passionate about his craft and his region cavers. It will be retired in 2017 so if you go there and you have the chance to see you will not regret your trip. Finally, take your kids to this visit, the explanations are very well made, very educational, and particularly simple for children.
