Camping Dordogne near the Gouffre de Proumeyssac

Nicknamed the Crystal Cathedral, the legend tells that this hole was the home of the devil because of the smoke that escaped from it.

Explored in 1907, the different galleries show stalactites, monoliths and stalagmites.

The chasm has the particularity of having a petrifying fountain that transforms in one year simple handmade pottery into shiny limestone objects.

Two possibilities to visit it:

– Traditionally, access is through a tunnel. A 45-minute tour with guides.
– Via a rotating gondola allowing a 360 degree view.

Sounds and lights complete this grandiose construction of nature.

Visit the largest equipped cave in the Dordogne.
