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

#1 of 7 in Things to do in Saint-Bauzille-de-Putois
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.

  • Sensational. The great Hall is classified in the world heritage of UNESCO. Access by funicular is a pleasant attraction for children. The visit lasts 1 hour. A must if you're in the area.

  • Great cave to see absolutely. We have s made with our 3 kids and 9 years who loved it. Great guide. I take off 1 star because the groups are too important, so much waiting on the visit.

  • Very nice cave for an acceptable price. Security is present throughout the course, which is done with a guide. A less vertiginous path is available for sufferers of Vertigo. A wonderful natural site.

  • I recommend the visit Sunday morning to avoid the crowds. The cave is open all year round it is an advantage. Great tour, a few steps up and down without worries. 1 hour of discovery with movies. Note that the car park is one-way (a single input and a single output inverted).
