Large cave room have hanging stalagmites, pools, hot tubs, and baths with mineralized water that is rich in carbon dioxide. The cave shows you 2,000 years of hydrotherapy.

Petites grottes très sympa. Très bien expliquée. Nous avons découvert pleins de choses. C'est une visite qui peut se faire en famille, ou en couple. Quelque soit le temps.Very nice small caves. Very well explained. We discovered many things. This is a visit that is a family or as a couple. Whatever the weather.show original
Visite intéressant, bien que trop courte. Le petit plus : la "prévision météorologique " faite par la guide avec les bulles de savon.Visit interesting, well that too short. The little extra: "weather forecasting" made by the guide with soap bubbles.show original
Pour 6€50 il n'y a vraiment pas grand chose à voir. Beaucoup de baratin de la part de la guide, des coups de casque, sauf pour la guide qui n'en porte pas car elle est assurée!!!(sic).For €6 50 there is really not much to see. A lot of talk on the part of the guide, helmet shots, except for the guide that is not because she is assured! (sic).show original
Céline Cottens➕ friendly guide ➖ excessive fee to see 3 poor rooms which 1 outdoor big doubt on the historical part and some forum confirm me my doubts. A real tourist grabs don't stop, disgusted to do have like that.show original
Lionel arponesHelpful but not much to see the cave is my meaning without interest and the Roman ruins at imagineshow original
Charles FERRERebecca was our guide for this visit, very well paid to the beauty of the site. Large and small have found their account (it seemed to me any at least), explanations ranging from the simple to the complicated without losing the audience's attention. I warmly recommend this visit, but to avoid wet weather because of the crowds and possible landslides.show original
