  • What a wonderful visit! It's a fascinating to discover subterranean world! Our guide (which I unfortunately forgot the name but which left us a very good souvenir of the visit) is exciting as totally "inhabited" by what she says, everything is very clear and informative, we literally drank his words and would the tour lasts for hours. We completely understood and adhered to his point of view on tourism in general and that of the caves in particular and appreciated the desire she has to protect those giving recommendations at the beginning of the visit to avoid damaging the places . That's why we were shocked a few days after visiting another well known cave in the same region where the guide touched the rocks and asked visitors to do Similarly, we lived it pretty badly and have not felt the same respect for the places.

  • These caves show both beautiful crystalline formations, including of very surprising undulating draperies, as well as some prehistoric traces. Two regrets: it is not possible to take photos (even without flash!) but there is a visit one day of the week where it is possible (we don't know what arriving on-site). In addition the guide comments are too vague on certain points (the formations of stalagmites or.. .tites and on the engravings). An interesting visit so but which needs to be improved.

  • This place is a little way but worth a visit, two themes are approached with professionalism, geology and pre-history. Well equipped because there's no path in concrete and moisture makes the floor slippery, but the guide secures and helps in the passages at risk. Very good explanations and good listening to answer the questions. Go
