  • Visit nice but nothing more. Plastic animals are friendly to children at a young age but spoil the landscape for others. It is difficult to project into different "parts" troglodytes. Above all, it is dangerous: developed markets are very high and the Earth slips! Insufficient guardrails. A lady slipped and injured her head pretty badly (and there is no rescue team on the spot so we need to call the Fire Department), many children have slipped and narrowly escaped a fall that could have been extremely dangerous... in short, security level is zero!

  • The staff is very nice. Disappointed because it's very fast, tiring because landscaping requires much physically, it's sometimes even dangerous. Ridiculous plastic animals and it is better that there is little world. The caves are cavities without interest! The observe of the village and an internet search on their origin and their history is enough!

  • On the one hand, I'm glad to have seen these "caves", which are actually rather cavities built by man. On the other hand, several negatives:-animals unnecessary plastic, come spoil the landscape. -Once you have seen a cave, all others are similar, because they are empty. As for the positives: - some interesting explanations on the history of these places - a very beautiful panoramic view from the cave it is far from inevitable, but it's still an interesting historic site.
