Visit of the cave

The cave was discovered in  1836 by a hunter whose ferret slided in a cavity. So far, 57 km of galleries have been explored and listed.

During a guided tour of one hour, 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 guided visit will allow you to reach the most beautiful rooms of the network on a 600m long circuit.

The cave of Saint Marcel d’Ardèche will leave you without  any doubt an unforgettable memory.
