    Before entering please understand what one is doing here. The price may seem student when you come with your family. I advise against it even with children who won't that very little interest. It is a long Gallery of 750 m where it is very cool. A fleece is indispensable. The place is dark and little put at ease the claustrophobic people. The purpose of this visit is to understand the work and the extraction of the stone used to build the castles and local houses. When speaking of painfulness to work today, this return back not so long ago, gives to think. What should be improved as soon as possible, it's the explanatory way of each items, read long texts in the half-light and cool is not an easy task. But, to means, certainly difficult to find. The tour is almost impossible. For lovers of the stone.

    We were more than disappointed for several reasons. First the beautiful picture on the home page is misleading because it is really the one and only thing you will see in this cave, so just 5 min to visit! everything else is empty to emptiness, nothing NADA! Another thing the price is EXORBITANT, € 54 for a family with 2 children. I call it a scam has this price I was expecting a guide and see things well but not the guide opens the door and it lets you do things in an empty spot! Very disappointed!

    This is the best site i visited in all of France. The art installations within this quarry are outstanding. The site itself is beyond comprehension. The couple that maintain the site and their adorable Great Pyrenees's are the best. You must go here.

    Very nice good career development by the organized course. We understand the work of the workers of the time and the operation of the site for centuries. Present contemporary works which bring a real appeal. To visit absolutely!

    Disappointing visit. Entry at €14, it is expensive we visit alone with written explanations. This could be interesting with a guide.
