In the year 2000 the cave system was listed as one of France’s greatest sites (Grand site de France). Besides the usual stalagmites and stalactites there are other phenomenon such as the “pine cone” and the “palm trees” and the organ pipes. The tour takes around an hour which includes a son & lumiere spectacle.
