La Grotte des Demoiselles, Saint-Bauzille-de-Putois

#2 of 9 in Nature in Herault
La Grotte des Demoiselles has served as, among other things, a hiding place and refuge for people from various walks of life. Exploring the cave was quite perilous until the 20th century, when it was outfitted with concrete stairs, walkways, sturdy railings, and extensive lighting. The name, which also has been "fairies' grotto," comes from a legend about a young shepherd who followed his lamb into the cave until he fell into a vast chamber known as the cathedral. Just before losing consciousness, he reportedly saw a vision of young ladies dancing and singing around him. When he awoke, he was outside the cave with his lamb.

    Wonderful place. How to describe what to visit once in life if not to write go there. Don't forget the guide because this one we at learned much more interesting things than the other with a touch of humour. Take a sweater it's fresh.

    Visit with 3 small, good recognition of children by the guide, a bit dangerous descent but an arrival on the largest Grand room! Too bad the guide promised sweets to children unless he was in but visit excellent. Must see!

    I haven't been to many caves but I'm glad I went to that one. The guide was very nice and full of knowledge, eager to answer our questions. The tour is well done. Absolutely worth it !

    Beautiful Cave with an amazing atmosphere on the inside. On the outside you have a breathtaking view, and a restaurant with a Michelin Recommendation that they deserve.
