Grottes de Lacave, Lacave

4.4
#3 of 9 in Nature in Lot
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.

  • Great visit with the little train that we bring to the heart of the cave. We very enjoyed this tour in a small group!

  • Very pretty and very well-appointed cave. Exceptional views. Very nice guide. Access by train very original.

  • The cave itself is very pretty but the organization isn't really at the top; wait almost 45 minutes to take the train which takes you into the cave. Then for an hour and a half walk in the cave with a guide who is certainly very spiritual and which could further explain. Only positive the possibility to take pictures without flash.

  • Beautiful cave! First with a little train a lot in the cave and then about a tour of an hour. Well worth the effort. Also fun for children. The tour is in French, but there is room to ask questions in the Dutch. There is also an English description available.

  • A highlight: the cave is open to the public year-round. A very pleasant and well commented visit by a friendly guide. The site is beautiful.
