  • The site is notable but unfortunately marred by the glut of colorful lights and staging.

  • Strange feeling arriving on the deserted site parking, in front of an old building... Hard to imagine that there is a beautiful cave under our feet, and yet! The view is wonderful, the tour goes by very quickly so our eyes are amazed. Stalagmites appear small seen from above, what a surprise when the guide sent us down markets little by little... lights are present just what it takes, guide is nice, in short, is a place not to be missed, young and old will be thrilled!

  • I had discovered the AVEN ARMAND 20 years ago and I always wanted to come back as this cave had left me a great souvenir. Thing done! As ever. An amazing show of nature. The journey has been reviewed as well as the "choreography". The guides make you live the history of the cave and is full of magic eyes that you pull out. Do the hook to go!

  • Simply the best cave I have ever visited, it's really worth going out of your way to visit, recommended.
  • Stunning place ... Try to get there for the 10am first tour ... Extra special
  • Essential. A journey to the center of the Earth as in the novel by Jules Verne. A funicular leads us into a huge cavity where grows forest of stalagmites. Spotlight dress color these huge columns. An unforgettable show. I highly recommend to make a detour to visit this site. The temperature is cool in the cave, predict a wool. €11,50 for adult, $ 8.60 for teenagers and €7,50 for children, it's a bit expensive for a family but, the show is guaranteed.

  • Spectacular spot, where I could enter despite the dog. Dogs should be placed in your backpack or purse. In the hall you will discover wonderful video projections on the walls, with sounds, colours and what we see is so beautiful to excite. And I think that Shepherd of sheep that, one day, he discovered the shaft and driven by curiosity caló in with a wooden ladder and rope, holding a lamp, unaware that under him lurked a treasure. The stalagmite in the world (30 meters) here looks like a pencil in front of the vault. It is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen and it tells a degree in geology. Congratulations to the French scene. Very impressive Shepherd shadow projection while climbing from the duct and very artistic to images of worlds and fantastic animals on the walls of the vault with commentary from "voice" by Jules Verne.

  • I wasn't expecting to find a place as beautiful with a spectacular geology under the ground. It is very careful with lighting that highlights the limestone forms. I recommend very much his visit.
