From the age of 4, the whole family can benefit from the guided visit which lasts approximately one and a half hours.  In fact, this site, unique in Europe, has recently discovered and is now classed as an Historical Monument.  You can still see how thousands of Merovingien (5th -7th centuries) sarcophagi (tombs) were extracted. 

The owners, who live in a troglodyte house, will take you round a genuine underground maze.  The guide, who is passionate about his caves, will fascinate you with stories of man's ingenuity.  He will share with you his personal experience of troglodytes.  You can ask him questions and you can participate, if it takes your fancy. 


Duration of the visit: 1 hour 15 minutes.
