    • The Medus Caves are divided into two parts: a lower gallery called " Dry Gallery " and an upper one " Wonder Gallery ".

      The richness of the concretions, the beauty of the underground river, the structure of the cave, the exceptional location of the entrance enjoying a unique setting and easy access are all elements that ensure a first-rate tourist value.

      All along the route, you can discover the most diverse concretions : Stalactites, Stalagmites, Eccentric, Columns or Gours and Petrified Cascades.

      If Medus is considered today as a remarkable tourist site, the places have already known over the centuries a notoriety of another kind. Until the end of the 18th century, it was a place of pilgrimage following the apparition of the Virgin Mary to a small shepherdess named Liloye. The miraculous reputation Médous had acquired made the site one of the three most important shrines dedicated to Marian worship in the diocese of Tarbes-Lourdes. With the smallest chapel on the site, dedicated to Our Lady of Medous, in October 2000 at the initiative of the Bishop of Tarbes-Lourdes, the pilgrimage took place as part of the Jubilee Year events.

      Before visiting the caves of Medous, you will enter the green park, the starting point and end point of this unforgettable visit. There are beautiful trees shading many streams fed by a semi-circular basin. This basin stops the water from the spring gushing out in waves from 2 neighbouring cavities.

    Fascinating cave with original stalactites and stalagmites plus curtains and other interesting formations. Finishing up with a short boat trip made the experience complete. Guide was friendly and well informed.

    The caves are Beautiful. But the tour guide only speaks french and you cant take a single photo - not even without flash.

    An interesting tour with some good stalactites and stalagmites. Not the best cave in France but a good option on a wet day.
