Caving between Causses and valleys – EN

In the Grand-Figeac, you’ll find an ideal playground for speleology. The Causses du Quercy, crossed by the valleys of the Lot and Célé, are dotted with grottos and galeries. The region’s limestone massif has allowed water to seep through for millennia, creating a immense underground network. The Lot and Grand Figeac represent one of Europe’s best spots to explore. So, are you ready for adventure?
