    • Protected by one of the magnificent hills in the Vézère Valley, the Proumeyssac Abyss is the largest managed cavity in the Périgord (50 m). The density and variety of the crystallisation which decorates the wall of this immense underground vault, set alight at first glance, make this a fine geological specimen.

      With the new lighting created for the third millennium and thanks to the various developments made, the Proumeyssac Abyss reveals new charms. The new tour, based on new state-of-the-art technology really comes up to the public's many expectations. Outside, several facilities have been designed for greater visitor satisfaction :

      - a geological area to increase understanding of the many
      geological phenomena;
      - a forest trail to discover the flora above the abyss;
      - a large reception area with bar, boutique and book shop;
      - a magnificent shady park with a rest area and picnic area along with a large room to shelter from bad weather.

      All the facilities around the Abyss are within easy reach and are free of charge.

    My wife is claustrophobic so we do not often visit caves or cramped places. In case of Le Gouffre de Proumeysacc the concierge at our hotel reassured us that this place is so large that she would...

    We have been to the Dordogne many times but never visited this particular Gouffre! Paying extra for the headsets for our children worked well. Our tour guide - Alex - was extremely polite and came up...
