La grotte aux mille couleurs Découvrez la plus grande grotte des Causses et des Cévennes. Site classé*** Cette grotte vivante aux mille couleurs, de part ses teintes naturelles très accentuées, émerveille aussi par ses dimensions impressionnantes et la variété incroyable de ses concrétions. Avec son emménagement de plus d’1 km, la cavité se dévoile salle après salle: grande voûte aux fistuleuses, cascade pétrifiée unique au monde, lacs cristallins, majestueux clocher. Elle donne au visiteur, petit ou grand le sentiment d'être un explorateur, en toute sécurité. Elle s’est vue dotée d’un nouvel éclairage led- dynamique, mettant en valeur, tout en la protégeant encore davantage et de façon naturelle, les volumes et les détails jusqu’alors insoupçonnés. Des guides passionnés vous immergerons dans ce monde féerique pendant 1H30. Sa terrasse panoramique sur les gorges de la Jonte permets de passer un délicieux moment de repos. "Le théâtre dont je rêvais" J.Cocteau

We chose this cave rather than the larger Aven Armand and were not disappointed. Good tour (ours was in French) from an overlook starting point that itself is spectacular over the Jonte.

We very much enjoyed our visit to Dargilan. The experience was great and the tour lovely. We were there with friends but the cave can be visited with children too.

Wonderful cave experience...about a 1km tour with a guide (in french - I got a sheet of paper with the basic tour and translation information that was very helpful). Beautifully lit with amazing underground natural structures and a few 'experiments' to add some humour to...More

We very much enjoyed our visit to Dargilan, which is quite different from Aven Armand, also visited on this long weekend out from our home in the Pyrenées-Orientales. Wonderful pink colors, beautiful formations, highly recommended. Presentation is far better than at Aven Armand, no "spectacularization",...More

Not that far from Meyrueis town (you are already used to the very winding roads if you reached this town) in the Gorge de Tarn. Certainly worth a visit as this is one of the best caves I have seen (guided visits only), and also...More

Ideally placed between the Tarn Gorges. Inside, an hour-long guided tour takes you through the largest cave in the Causses and Cévennes regions, renowned for its incredible natural colours (the pink cave), the variety of its concretions and its “petrified waterfall”, a rock curtain that...More

One cannot but be in awe of nature when one sees its hidden beauty in a cave such as this one near Meyrueis. The formations and colours, enhanced by the sympathetic lighting, were truly brilliant and the guide was very informative. However, if one cannot...More
