    • "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.


      SCHOOL:
      the number of children is necessary for the design of a price proposal.

      PRIVATE EVENTS:

    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.

    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

    This is a fun mountainside funicular built in 1900 and able to transport up to 80 passengers on a 1.1 km journey to the top of a mountain (950m). The ride is about 15 minutes and runs on a departure schedule, both directions, every 20 minutes. Return ticket prices were (€9 per adult) when we visited recently. They can be purchased at the ticket booth in the lower station. Beside the upper station there is a small restaurant, some short hikes around the forested area and countryside up at the peak. There is a grotto (not open when we visited) and cycling trail that starts just beside the restaurant before winding down down the mountainside. Loads of viewpoints. You can see Lourdes, valley below and Pyrenees Mountains from the mountaintop. Overall, this is a very enjoyable activity for those visiting Lourdes
