    • 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.
