Today we visited Grotte de Foissac with our children (7&8). The guide spoke also English, so we could understand the story told. The cave had some interesting parts (people actually worked in this cave). Also, people were buried in the cave and you could see...More

Great cave formations and remains for bronze age man. The guide was very attentive and tried to explain as much as possible in English. No cameras allowed :-( but well worth a visit

This cave is well worth the visit, even more than the Gouffre de Padirac I found. Before you go down the cave you can visit a small museum on the other side of the street. I found it a bit disappointing though, quite amateurish. Once...More
