Aven Armand

Highly recommended
Nestling deep in the Causse Méjean, the Armand aven (pitch) is one of the wonders of the subterranean world. The funicular takes you down more than 100m/328ft underground, where you find yourself in a forest of stalagmites within a vast gallery 60m/196ft by 100m/328ft. The bases of some of the stalagmites measure up to 3m/10ft in diameter and 25m/82ft in height, while the vault is 45m/148ft high. An unforgettable 3D sound and light show is projected onto the walls, immersing the visitor into a magical, imaginary world.
