> THE TRADITIONAL TOUR
A tunnel leads you easily to this vast underground vault, its walls decorated with a multitude of exceptionally thick crystallizations.
Light shows and music complementing the originality of the site, provide a background for the 45-minute tour given by experienced guides, leaving you with unforgettable memories.

> THE DESCENT BY BASKET
Before the access tunnel was built, visitors were lowered into the caves 3 at a time in a horse-powered basket.
This lowering system was recently brought back into service. It now allows – those who want to – to have an unusual tour, just like at the turn of the century. Thrills guaranteed! (max 11 people at a time)

> THE EDUCATIONAL FUN PARK
The park specially designed for our visitors has been improved with a new educational fun area and a museographical area. A series of fun stops allow the entire family to have geological experiences, go back in time, or learn about speleology, in a special games area.

> THE MUSEOGRAPHICAL AREA
The goal of the museum is to immerse the visitor in an underground world, using cave decorations.
It takes the visitor back in time, from the 18th century legends of the Proumeyssac caves, to the story of their discovery, their opening up to tours, and right up to our own day…
