Gape at the size of Grotte de La Verna, a capacious 4 hectare (12 acre) cavern in one of the largest cave systems in the world, extending 250 m (820 ft) wide and 190 m (623 ft) high. It's part of the Pierre Saint-Martin massif, which features 2,000 chasms--including a dozen or so reputed to be among the largest in the world. The site also features 380 km (236 mi) of underground explored cave systems and 13 major rivers. Today you can take a guided tour or hike into the world's tenth-largest cavern on your own via an access tunnel made for an underground hydroelectric plant.
