Simply humbling to find something so wonderful 25m beneath your feet. A fitting monument to lives lost in finding this cave system. A true testament to French determination presenting a worthwhile attraction for the area.

Enchanting cave that is accessible for users of a wheelchair, our compliments! Do hire an audio guide or plan your visit during a moment their are tours in your own language.
