    You have to visit this place if you visit the lourdes church. It's a 24 mins drive from the Lourdes church but it was totally worth it. We came here on April so there was a not a lot of people but in July and August it will be packed. The guide was funny and excellent 💯 The stones and structures formed by water droplets was sensational to watch. The place is full of history. I highly recommend this place ✔️

    Fantastic place! Free parking. Just follow the road signs for cars (not for buses). The 2h trip inside the cave is very well organised. Visitors are all the time escorted by friendly tour guide. Audio guides are available on different languages. The cave inside is truly breathtaking. Even the best camera can not capture the beauty of this cave. You must see it to appreciate it. Good for children and adults ( 4/5 years old + due to many steps going down). Steps and cave paths are wide and safe to walk. Lights inside are more than enough. Nice underground river crossing by boat, nice underground train ride at the end of the cave exploration. In overall this place worth every penny. The souvenir/coffee shop at the end of the trail is very nice as well. Good place to enjoy cup of coffee and apple pie before to leave. Highly recommended.

    Naturally formed underground caves discovers in the 1800's. There is a train ride and boat ride taking you around the caves. Truly a unique experience! Only a 40 minute ride from Lourdes.
