    • This cave is interesting both from a geological and a prehistoric point of view. During the guided tour you will be able to admire impressive flows of calcite, delicate stalactites, transparent draperies and countless stalagmites. You will also discover prehistoric paintings.

      They represent the authentic testimony of our ancestors’ art. You can see horses, bisons and one rare human representation in prehistoric art.

    The best Cave system I have ever seen. Stalictights are fantastic. Well worth a visit

    The cave was magnificent, truly breathtaking. Such a shame photography was not allowed. And more effort could have been made for non-French speakers on the tour. With basic French I felt I missed out on the details.

    4 / 5 Reviews posted by John R (Christchurch, New Zealand) on 06/09/2019

    Amazingly beautiful formations and the cave has been very well lit. Not a lot of art and some of it will have been covered by the ongoing calcification. But what is there is easy to see. Only seven...
