Visited here with three young kids (all under 5). A fantastic cave experience - one of the best run caves and most interesting cave system I've been to. Friendly staff and extensive areas to explore. Well worth the visit.

These caves are large, impressive and well organised to cope with large numbers of visitors. The caverns are full of speleological features, making for very interesting viewing. However, the signing & infrastucture make for a slightly artificial visit - not much sense of adventure. Nevertheless,...More

One of the most spacious caves I have ever visited. The interior is well maintained and kept very clean. Learnt a lot about rock formations of the Pyrenees alps from the information boards.

Lovely cave but the visit was slightly spoiled for me by the garish signage and café at the entrance. The cave is massive and the kids loved it. Could do more to emphasise the beauty of nature rather than add in lots of distractions ......More

Forget chedder caves this is the real deal. Well worth the 10 € adult fee. The light and sound show at the end of the cave was brilliant.

Superlatives fail in describing how amazing this cave is. Grand spaces, fantastic stone formations, excellent lighting, classical arias in the largest chamber (the loop has only 3 pieces). Younger kids get a treasure-hunt-like brochure (with stereo-glasses and a flashlight). Older kids and adults simply walk...More

This is the most impressive cave I have ever seen. So many, such beautiful formations. Be aware that the trip advisor map currently locates this cave south of Corneilla, however it is actually north of the town, closer to Villefranche. The cave name on the...More
