  • 7 euros to visit a cave with an entry of 10 m 2 and a 3 meter long hose it is humbug! Visit barely 20 minutes. A few lines on two walls and a lot of imagination on the part of the guide, who knows his text by heart brackets but especially not to interrupt because you are entitled to a bad look, reflection and especially if you have children Board gagged the because that person made a severe allergy to the children. There is nothing to do interesting, that's a lot of difficult access road for nothing if not a waste of time. Also avoid the watcher to the right of the entrance room, mount a dozen markets very high and dangerous, especially for children, for nothing, Rocky difficult descent and honeycomb up in the holes in the walls. And finally a small recess at the exit of the cave or we see a poor semblance of sorcerer with a sex that goes beyond his clothing that the guide showed us with a large brief loss of time and money sourire(peut être un porno de l'époque)

  • This visit has been a great surprise, personally we were plus six other people, but never the famous guide who seems to have traumatized many people on TripAdvisor has been unpleasant, there wasn't any toddler but we were able to ask questions and even to exchange about 10 minutes after the visit with the guide. Engravings deserve because they are not easy to see, but stake is worth it because these engravings are indeed quite exceptional. Including the famous "sorcerer". You learn a lot of thing and the guide also addresses the context of the cave with a lot of poetry. That makes the single visit, the place is small, so very intimate, it was really the feeling to get into the shelter of the artist who carved the rock nearly 10,000 years ago. The small museum complements the visit and allows you to admire a beautiful collection of relics and other bones. A visit that I highly recommend if you're curious about the prehistory!

  • Fantastic Guide. First of the cave carvings i have seen so i cant judge against other ones in the area. Good lighting in the cave which they use to emulate how the paintings would of been viewed when first completed. Takes about an hour between going on the tour and having a poke around the museum and lookout point in the caves up the mountain.
  • Friendly staff and small friendly Committee visit. Toilet with stalactites in training.

  • Small cave where the visits are private and very well conducted. In addition there is a museum. Not to be missed

  • I liked the boutique and the houses where one can climb but the visit is extremely short, it is a bit disappointing
