  • A very nice place to visit, however, the length of the caves is restricted for a time of visit of about 45 minutes. I would have liked to see more, so pit but I recommend, it is to be seen at least once!

  • You will know all about constructions, the chalk quarries and underground networks of the city.

  • With a little valued heritage and a guide neither convinced nor adapted to children, this visit is far from the jewels of provins.

  • Although I wouldn't visit Provins just to see these man made caves, they are a must if you are visiting the other attractions. You must visit with the tour guide and the tour lasts about an hour. The tours are in French, but our guide was nice enough to give a summary in English.
  • a place to visit absolutely if you come to provins. discover the undergrounds of provins, dag in middle age and unveil all their misteries, let yourself guide through the history and myths of this beautyfull place just before you walk up to visit the medieval town.
  • Nice guided tour of about 25 min. All in French. Tour is less impressive if you dont understand it.
  • Interesting experience but the temperature is permanently 12 C. So prepare some stuff to keep yourself warm if you decide to go.
  • Of course only with guided tours. The history of the cave system and its shapes are similar to the cave-system near Maastricht in Holland ( the "Mergelgrotten") Gives a good understanding of the historic meaning of the place.
