    • You say to yourself : "Another cave with stalagmites and stalactites ?" Certainly, you will see. But that is not why Maxange has been recognized as unique in the world. Do you know the eccentrics ? These are limestone formations that go in every possible and unimaginable direction. Visible in only a few caves in the world and in small quantities, it is by the thousands that you will discover them in Maxange. 30 minutes from Sarlat, do not miss this masterpiece of nature in this cave discovered less than 20 years ago. An experienced guide will take you into the mysteries of this unique site, easy to access, classified as a national heritage, 2 stars in the Michelin Guide.

    Niet de grote, indrukwekkende grot, maar wel heel erg de moeite om te bezoeken door de buitengewone formaties. De formaties zijn mooi verlicht en de gids geeft een goeie uitleg en wacht telkens tot de hele groep bij hem is. Hij had zelfs een micro en versterkertje bij, maar dat was voor onze kleine groep niet nodig. Aanrader!

    Très jolie grottes. Des concretions rares. Du frais quand il fait chaud.

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by Lowleytheworm (Cynwyd, United Kingdom) on 18/07/2020

    Lovely cave where we took our somewhat reluctant 7 and 11 year old boys. They loved it with spectacular stalactites and unusually shaped formations in vast quantities. Well worth the time to visit

    Les Grottes de Maxange is a wonderful way to cool off on a hot summer day. The caves are full of stalactites called exentriques - so called because instead of growing vertically, they grow in all...
