A unique cave in the Natural Regional Park of the Haut-Languedoc!
The cave was discovered in 1887, by French railway workers. In the heart of the Haut-Languedoc Regional Natural Park, the cave is nicknamed "Palais de la Fileuse de Verre" (Palace of the Glass Spinner) for the beauty, the finesse and the diversity of its concretions. Through the centuries, water has created wonderful shapes: stalactites, stalagmites and aragonite flowers. At the end of the guided visit, an underground world discovery area brings together original objects from the underground conquest with a 3D projection , which completes the visit and offers an introduction to speleology.
