  • Visit nice and original underground with a very good guide on the process of petrification. Negative for the price the visit was short.

  • 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.

  • Visit interesting, well that too short. The little extra: "weather forecasting" made by the guide with soap bubbles.
