    • The density and the variety of crystallizations which decorate the walls of this immense underground vault which one embraces with a single glance, offer a real geological interest. With a new light created for the 3rd millennium and thanks to important developments, the Gouffre de Proumeyssac reveals new charms. The new visit, based on new cutting-edge technology, meets the multiple expectations of the public.

      A second way to visit the chasm with the basket:

      In the past, visitors descended 3 by 3 into the chasm using a basket operated by a horse. This initial system has been returned to service. The visit of the abyss seen from another angle. Visit with descent in a basket (max. 8 people - additional charge).
      A large open and free shaded park.

      Several facilities have been designed to further satisfy the visitor:

      - Recreational and educational park and museum area
      - geological area - forest trail
      - playground and relaxation area
      - picnic area
      - large lobby with bar, shop and bookstore

    Great cave but sadly touristic, with light and music shows. Also you can't take pictures but they use strobes to lit up the cave...

    Wonderful experience, the stalagmites are lit by spotlights and there are incredible structures throughout the cave. Well worth the visit, the audio phones provide a good guide for those who don't speak French. Visit around 45 minutes. Perfect for both rainy days and those wanting to escape the hot sunshine! Highly recommended.

    Great experience, the guided tour takes the visitors through different levels of the cave and once behind the stalagmites through a narrow corridor where one needs to duck. The pools at the bottom of the cave have crystal clear water and the chamber in it's own is very impressive. The bulb like chamber is about 150ft high with the narrow opening at the top which would be about 15ft in diameter. There is an animation where they explain the formation of the cave millions of years ago. There is water dripping still from some amazing formations down the middle of the chamber. Totally worth a visit and highly recommended. Pictures weren't allowed.

    1 / 5 Reviews posted by R5059QSkimw on 22/08/2020

    This is not safe. Virtually no attempt by management to enforce any social distancing, eg by making tour groups smaller, spacing them out so you don't have to pass others in tight corridors. If you...

    Very nice and a must see but the measures regarding Covid 19 are non excisting. Too much people are allowed in a group to enter the cave so people are forced to stand way too close to each other. To...
