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

4.8
#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. A visit to La Grotte des Demoiselles represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Saint-Bauzille-de-Putois trip itinerary website to plot your vacation.

  • Caves which can be visited in height, too beautiful. Guided visits and cool in the summer it feels good...

  • Demoiselles cave dominates the high Valley of Hérault, below of Ganges, and offers a magnificent spectacle and magic. Its dimensions and the richness and variety of its concretions make "the Cathedral of the abysses". The your underground funicular (the first of its kind in Europe) allows a large number of people have access to the central part of this magnificent natural monument. The guided tour of 1 hour between calcite Giants caves, stalactites and stalagmites make your encounter with the lush "Demoiselles" (legendary fairy) an unforgettable experience. Gift shop and brasserie in the rocks. Mediterranean gardens. Panoramic terraces. Place catalogued by the Ministry of the environment.

  • Great place to visit and spectacular views! I do recommend it in summer ;)
  • I did not put 5 staring because it is true that during the visit if one is behind, means nothing. So, if you go there, I advise you to be next to the guide. But the cave is beautiful and I find that the legend of the cave is very beautiful. The guide is very friendly, and it explains things very well. He deserves his tip at the end place to visit with your family or friends. I love this cave. I advise you.

  • Visit made on October 26, a guide who not speak there was nothing crowded 2 wagon for a guide, and it sends a slide even if people did not all arrive the last slide we have seen that half of the beautiful pictures and beautiful views panoramic it rest shame that there are too many people anyway and should put speakers in each. With microphones for guides... but I do it with my girlfriend because you don't have Vertigo.
