9.5 final match.
Cave of the Carbonnières

The hidden treasure of the Causse de Rocamadour. Shaped by water and time, the Grotte des Carbonnières presents a great diversity of concretions where stalactites, stalagmites, draperies, columns and fistulae rub shoulders. It offers an exceptional underground landscape with a ceiling crossed by remarkable roots and walls in contrasting colors lined with eccentrics. The 350 meters of galleries are subdued by 100% LED lighting which sublimates the age-old concretions and gives the Grotto a magical atmosphere. At the bend of a gallery, a sound and light show full of poetry and harmony, a magical discovery of the power of water.
