Grotte de Limousis

Grotte de Limousis

Grotte de Limousis

Aude - D 511

This cave dates back at least to the Neolithic Period, when it was inhabited by man. It was also used in Roman times and in the Middle-Ages. The cave was formed from limestone in the primary era, and hollowed out by an underground river.

The Chandelier room is quite famous in the region. Equally important are the numerous stalactites, stalagmites, draperies, discs and pendeloques. The cave also has remains of cave bears, as well as an underground lake.....

The unusually large range of crystals and rock formations of the Gouffre Geante de Cabrespine is carefully protected. Translated the name means giant Chasm of Cabrespine. It was first discovered in the 1970s and is one of the largest caves in the world that is open to the public. The cave is 150 meters long and almost 300 meters high. The cave has been open to the public since 1988 and a small fee will take you on a guided tour. The cave that tourists visit is as deep as the Eiffel tower is tall. The tourists enter the chamber near the top, to fully appreciate the depth and all the beautiful formations this chamber of the cave has to offer....

Grotte de l'Aguzou

Grotte de l'Aguzou

Grotte de l'Aguzou

Aude - D 29

The Aguzou cave is remarkable for its beauty and its mineral profusion. Unusual visits are proposed in the form of subterranean walks.
The cave is still absolutely natural: there has been no artificial lighting installed, and no ostentatious arrangements. Visits are organized for small groups only, in the form of an underground hike. Equipment supplied: helmet, lighting and suit. There is a diversity and profusion of minerals in the cave, including aragonites, Helictites (eccentrics) and triangular crystals.

This is one of the most beautiful caves in Europe, part of a geological heritage we must preserve for future generations. It also represents a journey in time and space deep in the underground world of our planet...
