Located on the heights of Saint-Bauzille-de-Putois, the « Grotte des Demoiselles » abounds of enormous stalagmites and stalactites, as well as of flows of calcites, of columns and of translucent drapery. Fascinating for many reasons and admired by potholers coming from the entire world, the cave is considered to be an underground cathedral.
Also named « La Grotte aux Fées », it is in one of the largest rooms of the cave ( depth : 50 meters, length : 120m, width : 50m)), that you will discover the spectacular concretion named after its shape : Madonna and Child.
Roam the cave and its rooms thanks to the first underground touristic funicular in Europe and take part in a surnatural trip at the heart of Earth. The dynamic staging allows all the different rooms to be sublimed during the visit inside the Grotte des Demoiselles.
Real library of geological times, the cavity has always fascinated the inventors of modern speleology such as Edouard Alfred Martel, Robert de Joly or Norbert Casteret.

Feel like getting some height ? The via ferrata of Thaurac offers a stroll in the middle of the wall above the Hérault gorges and in natural cavities, which gives it a special atmosphere between caving and climbing.
