reopening JUNE 13. We can't wait to SEE you !!!

At the heart of the largest cave in Europe ...

The fascinating Lombrives where legends, protohistory and history have left their traces ... After crisscrossing the mountain on a small tourist train (or on foot if you prefer), your guide will accompany you in "the lair of the giant".You will cross the Carène, walk along the geological fault and take the Passage of Crime.Then, you will be in the grandiose Amphitheatre: a sacred cathedral that is ideal for meditation but also for cultural events.After a long flight of stairs, the upper level opens onto the tunnel of the cemetery.You will then go through tunnels adorned with curious stalagmites.Here, you will be before the tomb of Princess Pyrene, originally from the Pyrenees, according to Greek mythology.Then further on you will see the lake with mysterious ripples.

The Shelters for the Magdalenians, the burial place for the Bronze Age people, sacred Cathar place, Protestant refuges, a hiding place for people.

 Lombrives has always fascinated humans who left thousands of signs and enigmatic symbols.

« When you enter LOMBRIVES, an ancient, surprising and powerful world is given to us.
A break from the real world, a unique moving, introspective experience 
beyond what we can imagine. »
