Of course! Especially for the shelter during the 1h20 visit. Visits take place even where autumnal floods happen (back-to-front route).

We have a diner and a bar with seating on the panoramic terrace.

Are there things to do around the Cave ?

We are fortunate to be at the heart of the majestic Grand Site de France des Gorges de l’Hérault / St-Guilhem-le-Désert … an unforgettable day is assured !
