Geological and prehistoric heritage.

Au Sud de la Dordogne et à deux pas de Sarlat, les grottes de Maxange sont surprenantes à plus d’un titre.

First, because of their recent history since they were discovered by chance in 2000 but also because of the quality of the geological treasures they contain and which visitors can now enjoy.

There you will encounter different geological formations from common stalactites and stalagmites. Here, eccentrics can be observed, rare and fascinating calcite formations challenging gravity. Let yourself travel to the center of the Earth amongst formations shaped by Nature through millenars.

An experienced guide will help you to discover this unbelievable but nonetheless, human-scaled cave.
The cave, enlisted to the National Heritage interest is easily reachable.
