    • "A JOURNEY INTO THE UNDERGROUND WORLD OF PIC DU JER"

      The guided tour of the highest developed caves in France will take you into the underground gallery of the Pic du Jer, on an easily accessible route 360 ​​meters long.

      HISTORY OF CAVES

      20,000 years ago, when the glaciers melted, water infiltrated and carved out the Pic du Jer at its summit. Rocky debris was deposited and blocked the bottom of the chasms as well as the natural opening at the start of the visit, leaving only a few meters of passage accessible. Work was then undertaken to connect the various crevasses and natural cavities located under the summit of the Pic. The caves have been open to the public since 1958.

      THE VISIT IN BRIEF

      11 rooms make up the route of the visit along the 360-meter gallery. You will be able to admire concretions from the oldest to the most recent (stalactites, stalagmites and draperies) and you will be impressed by the chasms (the deepest of 45 meters). You will pass in front of large faults, testifying to the formation of the Pyrenees.

      At the exit of the gallery, a landscape reading will be offered to you to close this beautiful discovery of the underground world.

    A must see sight while in lourdes for all ages. A short trip to the top to view outstanding scenery and relax in a cafe/ Bar which was good value for money. You can also walk up another 500/ 600 metres which is difficult for some people. But from the cross, even better views Enjoy.

    Amazing view from the restaurant at the top of the funiculaire. Short walk to the peak if desired

    It is impossible to describe it with words and pictures. This should be experienced firsthand. And believe me, you won't regret it. The funicular ticket is around €13 for an adult and less for a child. Of course, there is also a family card. And believe me, it's worth every cent. Unfortunately, we didn't visit everything because we didn't have time. Take 1 day just to go up there. You won't regret it
