Grotte des Demoiselles

Highly recommended
The Grotte des Demoiselles crevice in the plateau of Thaurac dominates the Hérault Valley. It is reached by a cable-car and right from the entrance, visitors are struck by the size and number of the concretions. Narrow corridors lead to an immense chamber 120m/394ft long, 80m/262ft wide and 50m/164ft high, and to the legendary stalagmite resembling a Virgin and Child. Turn back and admire the impressive set of "organ pipes", before continuing past beautiful draperies of calcite.
