      2 NEW SOUNDS AND LIGHTS - 360° 3D MAPPING

      The Gouffre de Proumeyssac was the first underground site in France to use lighting with “3D mapping” to enhance a cavity.
      Targeted until then on part of the Gouffre, this technology, so much appreciated by the public, will now be deployed throughout the natural setting l of the “Crystal Cathedral”.
      The visitor will thus live a unique experience in this mineral universe to the rhythm of dazzling sounds and lights.
      As in the last century, spectacular and original, the visit option with basket descent allows an extraordinary experience (11 people)
      The vast open and free park, reserved for our visitors, has a fun and educational space on the underworld.

    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.
