Cave of the Grand Roc Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

From the terrace at the entrance to the cave (discovered by J Maury in 1924), there is a fine view of the Vézère Valley. After 40m of narrow tunnels, there is an extraordinary profusion of stalactites and stalagmites of coral-like beauty (note the "Victory of Samothrace") and a wide variety of other geological curiosities, plus crystalline formations (triangles, loops and spirals).

    Le site à lui seul vaut le coup d’œil avec les terrasses panoramiques, accueil sympathique et restauration typique simple mais savoureuse. Site propre et bien entretenu, idéal pour une halte ou une petite promenade. Grotte de concrétion classique.


    la mise en valeur plutôt décalée d'un site majeur de la préhistoire. Heureusement le documentaire projeté remet le site à sa juste valeur.
