Called the crystal cathedral, Le Gouffre de Proumeyssac is a cavern filled with intricate crystal formations alongside breathtaking stalactites and stalagmites.
Enter the cavern via tunnel--or, for a fee, you can be lowered into it in a basket, just like the early explorers. Try to catch the dramatic light and music show that focuses on some of the amazing formations, which are nicknamed the waterfall, siren, jellyfish, and octopus.

Well set out site, with good parking, clean cafe, toilets, little shop and giant picnic area/kids play area. The tour itself - either the classic or the enhanced 'basket ride' tour are about 45 mins. Very well done commentary and light show, very enjoyable. Liked the walking through the narrow and restricted headroom passageways too! Nice wee museum bit, and powered in part by customers creating electricity via velo generators - very impressive. Reasonable price for what you get. Well worth a visit. Physically demanding for elderly or not so mobile folk.
Breathtaking views, well-preserved art of nature
