Visit of the cave

The cave was discovered in 1836 by a hunter whose ferret slided in a cavity. So far, 60 km of galleries have been explored and listed.

During your self guided tour, you will discover an underground network, converted and illuminated in an enchanting manner.

The cave of Saint Marcel contains a vast network of underground galleries, amazing basins, eccentric formations and immense rooms.

The visit will allow you to reach the most beautiful rooms of the network on a 500m long circuit.

You will find desks placed all along the route to introduce you to the geological formation of the cave at your own pace. Guides will be present in the rooms to direct you or answer your questions.

Saint-Marcel cave will leave you without any doubt an unforgettable memory.
