Grotte de Trabuc

Recommended
Trabuc cave, the largest in the Cévennes, was inhabited in the Neolithic Age, then again under the Romans, was used as a refuge to the Camisards during the Wars of Religion, and finally as a den to bandits, armed with pistols or trabucs (flintlocks), after which it is named. The cave is home to the Salle du Gong, with its large curtain formation reminiscent of an elephant's ear, gour pools, "red cascades" coloured by oxide, the remarkable underground landscape of the Cent Mille Soldats (100 000 Soldiers) and the clear-watered Lac de Minuit.
