  • Exceptional site. Do drive and walk on the path that runs along the cave. Impression to be swallowed up in the center of the Earth

  • This cave is truly apart as she goes through is by a secondary road that runs along the Arize who are naturally dug his furrow. This long crossing of 610 m about allows you to admire the beauty of the site to do by car or on foot, it seems to me that it is the only cave in Europe that can be crossed from side to side as well. The cave served as refuge to the Calvinists and Backslider... Visit cavities offers only little interest except for prehistoric art lovers, knowing that the original parts have been disseminated in various museums of France and elsewhere (St. Petersburg) summer, the brave do not hesitate to give themselves a shot of adrenaline by jumping to the elastic to the top of the entrance North... village had its hours of tourism in the 1970s glory. It has now become sad. The car park is located opposite the town hall without character to ugliness the center of this village. Damage there is, next, the square or the local fair takes place at the end of the summer. The Bell Tower of the Church is worth a visit, the very bare Calvinist temple also because it strongly marks the history of the village. Ariège Earth courage said it a long time ago!

  • We visited the cave of the farmhouse of Azil in low season with a young and competent guide. The history of this site through the ages is exciting.

  • We enjoyed the tour - the guide did a great job of explaining the sights in both French and English to a mixed crowd. Very interesting discussion of the different human and animal remains, and the distinct cultures of the people that lived there. Surprising additions to the cave: opera music and light show, random space dog, modern art chandelier exhibits, and imagined conversations between archaeologists.
  • We love this place. I feel it's a must visit if you are living in Toulouse and exploring the area.
  • Guided tour in english for us great information about cave-dwelling man, caves extensive on the inside, surprisingly large
  • The cave is nice, but the museum is guided only and quite expensive.
  • A great place to take a picnic. It is spectacular to walk inside and cross by car. There is a church very closely with a very picturesque ascent.
