Caves and swallow holes
There are wide open spaces underground too
Beneath your feet there's a parallel world. In Midi-Pyrénées you can visit mysterious decorated caves like the ones at Niaux in Ariège and explore the hidden depths of magnificent swallow holes like the Gouffre de Padirac in Lot. Lived in by prehistoric man or opened up more recently by cavers, our underground attractions with their amazing stalactite formations and rock paintings are waiting to be explored.
