Grottes de Lacave, Lacave

#2 of 7 in Nature in Lot
Cave Nature / Park
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.

  • Very cool tourist attraction! Explore this cave! You enter this cave with a train. Offices also houses a small gift shop.
  • The little train is fun but if your French is as bad as mine, you will miss some of the information. Still well worth going.
  • Very nice caves, far less crowded that the ones in le Gouffre de Padirac. You go twice into each chamber, so you see everything very well. However, there is are no visits in English. There is one grotto illuminated with black light, never saw anything like that.
  • Beautiful cave in the end of the train ride.
  • Great experience. Worth a visit
